Jack is upstaged by a 12-year-old.
7 August 2006 | by (Hollywood, California) – See all my reviews

This is an example of the entertainment of the time and of Jack Benny at his best. His guest star is Julie London who appears during the opening segment, and then sings a song. In her song she is a sex kitten but if you look at her features she seems to be a hard and serious woman.

Additionally Toni Marcus comes out during the opening segment and upstages Jack by playing the violin while Jack is signing an autograph for her. The regular Benny humor is on display here. Jokes are made and then repeated later in this show. Benny starts to play Czardas by Monti and Marcus comes on stage to request his autograph. He hands his violin to her telling her NOT to touch the hair on the bow. Benny's Czardas is incredibly bad. As Benny signs the autograph Toni begins to play Czardas they way it is meant to be played.

After Julie London signs her song Markus returns to the stage and Jack and she play a duet, each attempting to outplay the other. They duel with their bows and then begin with poems. "Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, I'm beginning to sound like you." Don Wilson also makes an appearance in drag which is something to see.
