Trivia

Humphrey Bogart joined Jack Benny in a funny and lengthy Lucky Strike cigarette commercial midway through this episode. It must have been quite a coup for the sponsor to have a huge Hollywood screen star like Bogart participate in a TV commercial. See more »

Wonderful early television
27 November 2006 | by (Springfield, Missouri) – See all my reviews

Jack Benny was, first and foremost, a showman; and consistently displayed top guest stars on his television show. But, it must have been quite a scoop to bring in Humphrey Bogart. The year was 1953, his great gangster films were behind him, major roles in Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon were out there, and he had recently won the Academy Award. Starred in a very cute skit, Bogie showed a little discomfort with comedy, but all it all it is a delightful time. Benny always knew the value of a good script, too; and generally deplored ad lib. The gags are generous and the situation is very funny. Old television at its best, and part of American cultural history.
