Using the book "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask" as a springboard for his special, Jack Benny's guests include the book's author Dr. David Reuben, Lucille Ball, Phil Harris, George Burns, Dionne Warwick, John Wayne, and a cameo by Bob Hope. Songs include Harris singing "That's What I Like About the South" (which Benny deconstructs), and Dionne Warwick singing "I Got Love" and "Who Gets the Guy". Sketches depict Benny's start in show business, and how he met George Burns, as well as a look at his mythical youth as a romantic leading man.Written by
Phil Harris would also sing "That's What I Like About the South" on a 1974 episode of "Here's Lucy" (S6;E21). In a 1968 episode of "The Lucy Show" (S6;E23) guest star Sid Caesar did a non-musical riff on the song. Character actor Remo Pisani (Vaudeville Agent) was also featured in that episode. See more »
