Publisher's Summary

Hilarious Hollywood spoofs were a beloved feature on many classic Jack Benny radio shows. Regular cast members and guest stars alike were recruited to send up cinema classics like Casablanca, High Noon, and Sunset Boulevard. Celebrities could count on large laughs - and, looking good next to Jack’s lovably vainglorious and miserly self - while poking fun at their most famous films.

Even without guests, the movie mockery continued. Jack would simply announce a sketch and proclaim that he would be playing the lead! The rest of the cast, of course, was not to be outdone - note Rochester’s rendition of "As Time Goes By" and Mel Blanc’s “Sleepy Mexican” routine.

A treasure trove for both Benny-philes and film fans, this set includes 12 digitally restored and remastered episodes, performances by the likes of Bob Hope and Edward G. Robinson.

Episodes Include: The Hunchback of Notre Dame 03-17-40; Mr. Benny Goes to Washington 01-24-43; Casablanca 10-17-43; The Killers 11-24-46; It’s a Wonderful Life 02-02-47; Dark Passage 11-02-47; The Treasure of Sierra Madre 05-01-49; Sunset Boulevard 03-25-51; Captain Horatio Hornblower 09-23-51; High Noon 09-28-52; Road to Bali 01-11-53; The Snows of Kilimanjaro 03-08-53.

The Benny Cast always delivers

My favorite is Mary Livingstone (sic), the original "sarky broad" who keeps Jack Benny in his place. The show retained her as an independent, single character for many years after she and Benny married in real life. Dennis Day also gets to showcase more than his singing skills and uses a variety of dialects and celebrity impressions. Even if you have never seen the original movies, these are very funny, good-natured shows.
