JACKIE GLEASON

I have been watching alot of JACKIE GLEASON lately! I had the pleasure of becoming friends with ART CARNEY until his passing. He really enjoyed both of my books and loved appearing in THE LEPRECHAUN'S CHRISTMAS GOLD. I hooked him up with my friend Gary Matheson and Gary sent him old Gleason shows, etc.
