Glamor and Glitz

Jack Benny, a master showman, knew the value of big-name guest stars; but he also knew they needed a device, a "hook." This episode is a very funny one about regular guys getting together to play some music. The fact that the guys were famous movie stars of the day makes the hook that they are just regular guys work, and work well. The set, Jack's living room, also shows the very high production standards of the show, with camouflaged soda and candy machines, strong allusions to Jack's fabled stinginess. And, I don't know if these guys played those instruments, or not (well, I know Jack played the violin); but it surely seems like they all did!
