TV OK Crackerby (ABC 1965-1966, Burl Ives, Hal Buckley) Published 3 years ago on August 3, 2016 Sitcom OK Crackerby followed the misadventures of the worlds richest man who having made his fortune out in Oklahoma was desperate to get himself a seat at the top table in the world of high society. In best Pygmalion fashion OK hired St John Quinney, a Harvard grad, to help him make in roads into social acceptance-dom. Most episodes revolved around various social get togethers and functions and also heavily featured were St john’s main squeeze and OK’s business partner Slim. There wasn’t really a great deal of milage to be had in the show hence the fact that it only lasted a single season, show creator Cleveland Amory was chief tv critic of TV Guide magazine. Being made in black and white at a time when most sitcoms were being made in colour probably didn’t help either. production details UK / ABC – United Artists – Beresford / 17×30 minute episodes / Broadcast 16 September 1965 – 6 January 1966 Creators: Cleveland Amory, Abe Burrows cast BURL IVES as OK Crackerby HAL BUCKLEY as St John Quincy BRIAN CORCORAN as OK Jr BROOKE ADAMS as Cynthia Crackerby JOEL DAVIDSON as Hobart Crackerby LARAINE STEPHENS as Susan Wentworth DICK FORAN as Slim JOHN INDRISANO as The Chauffeur ABCAbe BurrowsBrooke AdamsBurl IvesHal BuckleySitcomsTVUnited Artists Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes21 hours ago Strike Back: Season 7 Episode 5 (Cinemax Fri 22 Feb 2019) Episode 5: Following a high-speed jungle ambush in Myanmar, the suitcase nukes end up in the hands of Jean-Baptiste Zaza...
