Jack ought to be suspicious when his porter in the Rome airport speaks in a Scottish burr and looks like a Greek god. In Jack's hotel suite he hears a magnificent male opera singer in another room, so the Svengali signs the puzzled amateur up to conquer America. Written by
I have been a great fan of Jack Benny since his days on black and white television, as well as listening to his radio program rebroadcasts on "Old Time" XM Radio. I saw this episode last night as part of the local MyNetworkTV/Retro Television Network programming. As usual, Jack is appropriately funny, stingy, flabbergasted, exasperated, and frequently at a loss for words. What made this episode exceptional for me was seeing a very young Sean Connery pop on-screen as a porter lugging baggage! The future Mr. Bond....James Bond....had a comedic line or two, which he delivered in a manner befitting a wisecracking baggage-handler. Nonetheless, this very early James Bond sighting (1957) - albeit brief - made this episode of "The Jack Benny Program" worthwhile viewing to say the least.
