Walmart is carrying Best of Jack Benny TV shows (50s/60s) in their bargain bin for $5, and it is an amazing collection of 41 full episodes TV shows on 4 DVDs complete with Lucky Star commercial.

Each episode start with Benny side cracking monologue. And then on to comedy sketches, musicals numbers, routines and live on the spot Bennyís humor and it seems almost every Hollywood, radio and TV star shows up on Jack's show.

For example in one of musical numbers, we see Liberace with his glamorous outfit playing grand piano with silk curtains and candle light every where. And then all of sudden a country Bongo player with straw hat enter the scene and star playing and singing with Liberace. It was the funniest thing I seen on TV :D

Picture quality on DVD range form good to average on some episodes, yet it is not too bothersome. Here is the cover of DVD if interested:

Why am I not surprised there's no participation here Smokey? The Jack Benny show even pre-dates me, so you must be REALLY old! :smilewinkgrin:

To tell you the truth, I wasnít even born while that show was on and this is the first time I seen Bennyís TV show in its entirety. It is a laugh riot especially when Bob Hope and Benny get together.

Yes I do, at least in FF forum. This place need as much traffic as it can get and he came up with good movie subjects now and then. If it wasn't for the Lost thread, this place pretty much would have been a ghost town.

Ya know what's funny? My nieces who are 23, 25 & 27 now, used to sit, three feet away from the TV, eyes focused like laser beams, watching episode after episode of "I Love Lucy". This was when they were 10 - 13 years old. The strange thing is, they didn't laugh at any of Lucy's antics. They just sat there and stared.
