Storyline

Jack is thrilled to introduce his guest, actor Peter Lorre, who seems very modest and timid - until Jack congratulates him on his ability to personify evil, spurring Lorre to pull a knife from his jacket pocket. Jack has a nightmare involving Lorre, in which Jack visits a new doctor, because the doctor takes coupons and validates parking. Also waiting for the doctor is Lorre, hiding behind a newspaper blaring the headline "Crazed Murderer Escapes from Prison !!!" Written by David Stevens

Peter Lorre is hilarious in Jack Benny Program role
7 July 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Paired on Universal VHS with the last episode ever with The Smothers Brothers. Peter Lorre is hilarious whether trying to convince Jack he's not who he's like in the movies or in the sketch in which he tries to hide his identity as a wanted man in a doctor's waiting room with Jack as one of the waiting patients and Mel Blanc as the doctor! Joanie Sommers sings a wonderful love song that probably sold some records despite rock'n'roll already conquering the country (and with the Beatles U.S. arrival the following year, the world). This was one of Mr. Lorre's last performances before his death the following year so it's a real treat seeing him with one of the most deadpan comedians ever! By all means, check this one out!
