Jack Benny was a regular on his own radio program since 1932. He brought the program, with his underplayed humor, to TV along with his radio regulars. Jack, who remained 39-years-old, kept his money in his basement and drove his old Maxwell car just as he had done on the radio. Written by

Did You Know?
A 1952 spoof of Gaslight
(1944), entitled "Autolight" and co-starring Barbara Stanwyck
proved so popular that Jack Benny
wanted to rebroadcast it. Legal wrangling with MGM resulted in this not happening until 1959. See more
I believe in being honest with myself. If there's one thing I hate it's when a comedian is great and won't admit it. I've never met one like that, but if I did, I'd hate them.
