Jack Benny: Comedy In Bloom Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Thu, Nov 3, 2011 -- 8:00 PM

Narrated by Tom Smothers, this affectionate biography features classic clips from Benny's award winning television program, rare photographs, vintage footage and home movies. Interviews with Benny himself and with longtime close friends George Burns, Bob Hope, Johnny Carson, Dinah Shore, Carol Burnett and Ann-Margaret, shed light on the real Jack Benny who was far from the penny-pinching, vain and exasperating character he portrayed in his routines.
