Includes A Very Early James Bond Sighting
3 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
