Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
This re release of an earlier entry in the series features new footage of Ralph Staub and Jack Carson recalling the days when Jack Benny had his popular radio show. Screen Snapshots filmed an actual Jack Benny Radio Broadcast. Appearing with Jack are Mary Livingston, Eddie Anderson, Phil Harris, Don Wilson, Dennis Day and more. It is a rare look at how the radio show was broadcast and performed.
The Jack Carson footage contains moments of him clowning around with series creator Ralph Staub. Carson shows off his ability to do impressions.
A wonderful piece of history.
