JACK BENNY PROGRAM, THE: JACK PAAR SHOW (TV)

Summary

One in this comedy series starring Jack Benny. On this program, Benny's guest is Jack Paar. In his opening monologue, Benny speaks about the ongoing quiz show investigations. To conform to CBS's new policy of honesty, Benny admits that he is not really thirty-nine.
