Hilarious Cameos
26 February 2016 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Sprightly entry, with some outstanding cameos. Jack is casting acting candidates for his life story. This sets up some delicious interviews in his office. And get a load of Jackie Russell auditioning for his first girlfriend. Move over Jane Russell, as Jack melts before her shapely figure. Of course, Jack's comedy shtick was his unspoken reaction to provocations like this. Here, you can just imagine. Then there's 12-year old Barry Gordon, cute as a button, who turns out to be a budding shark-like theatrical agent. Of course, his tightwad shtick gets worked in, along with deliveryman Mel Blanc doing an hilarious sob-story on the phone. Will Jack now give him more than a dime tip. Tune in and find out.You won't be disappointed.
