The Hollywood Reporter states that Randolph was chosen for the celebrated TV show following Jackie Gleason taking notice of her in a chewing gum commercial. Impressed, Gleason invited her to join his variety show, Cavalcade of Stars. Randolph subsequently played Trixie Norton in the show’s spinoff, The Honeymooners. However, this series had a brief run of only 39 episodes before it was discontinued.
