Capitol's 2 CD compilation, Romantic Moods of Jackie Gleason is probably the best introduction, and likely the only recording most listeners will need. For those who want to explore more, though, several albums are worth a search.
Music, Martinis, and Memories is perhaps the best of his albums with Hackett, a perfect companion to a night of cocktails, cigarettes, and groping.
Riff Jazz and Rebound feature smaller combos and pleasant, if--surprise--unobtrusive, jazz numbers. On the other hand, while The Lonesome Echo is highly prized for its cover by Salvador Dali, its music is standard Gleason. Although Gleason couldn't read music, he went beyond just advising arrangers and picking songs. It always amazed the professional musicians how a guy who technically did not know one note from another could do that. And he was never wrong. The composer and arranger George Williams has been cited in various biographies as having served as ghostwriter for the majority of arrangements heard on many of Gleason's albums of the s and s.
In Gleason revived his original variety hour including The Honeymooners , winning a Peabody Award. It took Gleason two years to design the house; it was completed in His next foray into television was the game show You're in the Picture , which was cancelled after a disastrously received premiere episode, but was followed the next week by a broadcast of Gleason's  humorous half-hour apology, which was much better appreciated.
In , Gleason resurrected his variety show with more splashiness and a new hook: a fictitious general-interest magazine called The American Scene Magazine , through which Gleason trotted out his old characters in new scenarios; including two new Honeymooners sketches. He also added another catchphrase to the American vernacular, first uttered in the film Papa's Delicate Condition : "How sweet it is! Each show began with Gleason delivering a monologue and commenting on the attention-getting outfits of band leader Sammy Spear.
Then the "magazine" features would be trotted out, from Hollywood gossip reported by comedian Barbara Heller to news flashes played for laughs with a stock company of second bananas, chorus girls and dwarfs. Comedian Alice Ghostley occasionally appeared as a downtrodden tenement resident, sitting on her front step and listening to boorish boyfriend Gleason for several minutes.
After the boyfriend took his leave, the smitten Ghostley would exclaim, "I'm the luckiest girl in the world! Helen Curtis played alongside him as a singer and actress, delighting audiences with her 'Madame Plumpadore' sketches with 'Reginald Van Gleason. The final sketch was always set in Joe the Bartender's saloon, with Joe singing "My Gal Sal" and greeting his regular customer, the unseen Mr. Dennehy the TV audience, as Gleason spoke to the camera in this section.
During the sketch, Joe would tell Dennehy about an article he had read in the fictitious American Scene magazine, holding a copy across the bar. It had two covers: one featured the New York skyline and the other palm trees after the show moved to Florida.
Joe would bring out Frank Fontaine as Crazy Guggenheim, who would regale Joe with the latest adventures of his neighborhood pals and sometimes show Joe his current Top Cat comic book. Joe usually asked Crazy to sing—almost always a sentimental ballad in his fine, lilting baritone. His closing line became, almost invariably, "As always, the Miami Beach audience is the greatest audience in the world! Gleason kicked off the — season with new, color episodes of The Honeymooners.
The sketches were remakes of the world-tour episodes, in which Kramden and Norton win a slogan contest and take their wives to international destinations. Each of the nine episodes was a full-scale musical comedy, with Gleason and company performing original songs by Lyn Duddy and Jerry Bresler.
Occasionally Gleason would devote the show to musicals with a single theme, such as college comedy or political satire, with the stars abandoning their Honeymooners roles for different character roles.
This was the show's format until its cancellation in The exception was the — season, which had no hour-long Honeymooners episodes; that season, The Honeymooners was presented only in short sketches. The musicals pushed Gleason back into the top five in ratings, but audiences soon began to decline. By its final season, Gleason's show was no longer in the top In the last original Honeymooners episode aired on CBS "Operation Protest" on February 28, , Ralph encounters the youth-protest movement of the late s, a sign of changing times in both television and society.
The network had cancelled a mainstay variety show hosted by Red Skelton and would cancel The Ed Sullivan Show in because they had become too expensive to produce and attracted, in the executives' opinion, too old an audience. Gleason simply stopped doing the show in and left CBS when his contract expired. Gleason did two Jackie Gleason Show specials for CBS after giving up his regular show in the s, including Honeymooners segments and a Reginald Van Gleason III sketch in which the gregarious millionaire was portrayed as an comic drunk.
He later did a series of Honeymooners specials for ABC. Gleason hosted four ABC specials during the mids. Gleason and Carney also made a television movie, Izzy and Moe , about an unusual pair of historic Federal prohibition agents in New York City who achieved an unbeatable arrest record with highly successful techniques including impersonations and humor, which aired on CBS in In , three decades after the "Classic 39" began filming, Gleason revealed he had carefully preserved kinescopes of his live s programs in a vault for future use including Honeymooners sketches with Pert Kelton as Alice.
These "lost episodes" as they came to be called were initially previewed at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York City, aired on the Showtime cable network in , and later added to the Honeymooners syndication package. Some of them include earlier versions of plot lines later used in the 'classic 39' episodes. The storyline involved a wild Christmas party hosted by Reginald Van Gleason up the block from the Kramdens' building at Joe the Bartender's place.
Gleason did not restrict his acting to comedic roles. Gleason made all his own trick pool shots. He was extremely well-received as a beleaguered boxing manager in the movie version of Rod Serling 's Requiem for a Heavyweight Gleason played a world-weary army sergeant in Soldier in the Rain , in which he received top billing over Steve McQueen.
Gleason wrote, produced and starred in Gigot , in which he played a poor, mute janitor who befriended and rescued a prostitute and her small daughter.
It was a box office flop. But the film's script was adapted and produced as the television film The Wool Cap , starring William H. Macy in the role of the mute janitor; the television film received modestly good reviews. Gleason played the lead in the Otto Preminger -directed Skidoo , considered an all-star failure. In William Friedkin wanted to cast Gleason as "Popeye" Doyle in The French Connection , but because of the poor reception of Gigot and Skidoo, the studio refused to offer Gleason the lead; he wanted it.
Both were unsuccessful. Eight years passed before Gleason had another hit film. This role was the cantankerous and cursing Texas sheriff Buford T. Gleason's gruff and frustrated demeanor and lines such as "I'm gonna barbecue yo' ass in molasses! Years later, when interviewed by Larry King , Reynolds said he agreed to do the movie only if the studio hired Jackie Gleason to play the part of Sheriff Buford T.
Justice the name of a real Florida highway patrolman, who knew Reynolds' father. Reynolds said that director Hal Needham gave Gleason free rein to ad-lib a great deal of his dialog and make suggestions for the film; the scene at the "Choke and Puke" was Gleason's idea. Reynolds and Needham knew Gleason's comic talent would help make the film a success, and Gleason's characterization of Sheriff Justice strengthened the film's appeal to blue-collar audiences.
Halpern and Mr. Johnson He also gave a memorable performance as wealthy businessman U. Bates in the comedy The Toy opposite Richard Pryor. Although the movie was critically panned, Gleason and Pryor's performances were praised. His last film performance was opposite Tom Hanks in the Garry Marshall -directed Nothing in Common , a success both critically and financially.
For many years, Gleason would travel only by train; his fear of flying arose from an incident in his early movie career. Gleason would fly back and forth to Los Angeles for relatively minor movie work.
