CRAP !!
That was actress Pert Keaton !
Most people remember Pert Kelton as Ronnie Howard's and Shirley Jones'

Kramden role when 'The Honeymooners' debuted as a skit on Gleason's variety
show. She could not continue with the role for two reasons: she became
suspect by the McCarthy Senate hearings and suffered a major heart attack.
