First President on a Sitcom
27 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, this episode of The Jack Benny Show isn't very funny. Admittedly, there's a definite lack of comedy motif. Milton Berle wouldn't have touched it; Red Skelton couldn't have pulled it off. Jack Benny brought a president to commercial television, and his low-key humor fit right into the picture. (Well, maybe the show drags a little . . .)

Mr Benny made a visit to The Harry Truman Library, and was escorted by the 75-year-old first citizen of Independence, Missouri: President Harry S Truman. He gave Jack a personal tour of the library, and shared some of his insight into the history of the time. Jack wisely avoided interviewing, made a few jokes, and actually made Mr Truman laugh a little.

Not too funny, but really interesting . . .
