I finally got one perfect, 12 out of 12! Also, did you notice the TV Guide was $.15? You can’t get anything for $.15 anymore.

12/12. #5 with Jackie Gleason, happy because he is strutting along the golf course near his house in Lauderhill, FL. He moved his tv show the year before (1964) from NYC to Miami Beach, and bought a house just west of Fort Lauderdale, near a golf course. The biggest tv star (in more ways than one) to ever live in South Florida! There will never be another Jackie Gleason, same for Lucille Ball. The two most famous tv stars (and Desi Arnaz) from the 1950s!
