Trivia Tidbit:

The late Moss Hart, co-author of You Can’t Take it With You, was the husband of early television icon Kitty Carlisle, long time panelist on the program To Tell the Truth and featured actress in the Marx Brothers “A Night At The Opera” among other roles. Moss Hart’s autobiography, coincidentally, is entitled Act One.
