There's a website that has many videotaped oral histories of television performers and producers that you can watch online. During an interview with Kitty Carlisle at her home that was recorded on November 8, 2005, she mentions that Arlene Francis was a good friend and that her young son received the hand-me-down sailor suits that were previously worn by Arlene's son.
Kitty also said in the interview that she substituted for Arlene on WML? when Arlene "got into trouble". The off-camera interviewer asked her to clarify. Kitty alluded to the dumbbell that fell out of Arlene's apartment window and the times that Arlene "ran into people" (the car accidents).
Kitty also described Bennett Cerf as intelligent.
This two-part interview, under the auspices of the Archive of American Television and New York Women in Film & Television, is at
It is labeled "NYWIFT & AAT Interview with Kitty Carlisle Hart Part 1 of 2".
The Archive of American Television website (http://www.tvinterviewsarchive.blogspot.com/) lists all the people in the television industry that have recorded oral histories, many of which are viewable online.
So the point of all that was that Kitty was on the TTTT panel and she sat behing Henry Morgan and they talked and had fun. It looked like they were good friends. Does anyone know if they were good friends? I also thought that out of any girl that Henry could choose to be his bride, he and Kitty did look really good and cute together.
I read Ms. Carlisle's autobiography and I don't recall her mentioning Henry Morgan, although someone can correct me if I am wrong. She and her husband Moss were good friends with Bennett Cerf and his wife Phyllis. They vacationed together, etc. I think she even dated Bennett briefly. She also mentioned Arlene being a good friend.
