"The Honeymooners" Cast Signed Jet Plane Sound Effects 10" Clear Red Vinyl Record Jackie Gleason Art Carney Joyce Randolph Audrey Meadows Autograph
This clear red vinyl 10" record of jet plane sound effects has been signed on the paper sleeve in pencil by the cast of "The Honeymooners": Jackie Gleason, Art Carney, Audrey Meadows and Joyce Randolph. This was part of a large collection of signed vintage 78s I obtained which were owned by a musician who ran a guitar store and center in midtown Manhattan. Among some of the rare signatures on the records were Lead Belly, Django Reinhardt, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Glenn Miller and Fats Waller. My belief is that this record was used as a sound effect on "The Honeymooners", most likely the episode "TV Or Not TV". That's the episode where Ralph and Norton go in on the purchase of a TV together to save money. In a memorable scene, Norton is watching "Captain Video" and dons his own space helmet while watching the show. The sound of a rocket blasting off is heard, similar to the sounds on this recording. The record is one sided, and there are three tracks of jet sound effects on it. There are a number of scratches, but does not seem to affect play. The signatures are somewhat light, but of course anything signed by all four cast members is scarce, Jackie Gleason often using a secretary to sign.
