   Iacta alea est posted on Movies & Reviews  TV Trivia #1....The opening narration of TV's "The Odd Couple" begins..."On November 13th, Felix Unger was asked to remove himself from his place of residence"....what's so important about November 13th?

   StormCnter  Tony Randall's real name was Arthur Leonard Rosenberg. But Randall was in neither the stage play nor the film, so were the children added for the tv series? Or does Randall's real middle name have nothing to do with it.
August 17 at 07:48 EST .

  4 people like this.



   Iacta alea est  Storm is correct. Leonard and Edna were the given names of Randall and his sister. And yes Felix's kids were added for the TV show. There were other such canges from the play too. In the play it is Oscar who is a father, not Felix. In the play the ex-Mrs. unger is named Frances, not Gloria. In the play Felix and Oscar both work for the same newspaper, and Felix is not a photographer.

   Richdet  Here's another test of Odd Couple history -- anyone recall that Neil Simon did a female version of the play, which was staged on Broadway in the 1980s? Just checked to confirm this -- it had an eight-month run. Who played Florence Unger and Olive Madison? Any takers? The ladies played Trivial Pursuit, not poker, by the way.

   Iacta alea est  Sally Struthers and Rita Moreno. There was also a TV re-make that featured a black Felix and Oscar....what actors played them? Hint both actors had been featured on sit-coms in the '70's
