Episode title: “Bend of the River”
Special guest: JIMMY STEWART!
Starring: Jack Benny, Mary Livingston, Phil Harris, Dennis Day, Eddie Rochester Anderson, The Sportsmen Quartet, and Don Wilson.
Mel Blanc (better known as “Bugs Bunny” and all the other Looney Tunes Characters) steps in to do a little introductory annoucing.
Jack and Phil joke about a piano with 4 pedals.
Dennis sings his campaign song and “Be Anything, But Be Mine.”
Jack and the gang do another one of their famous parodies on a recent movie. This is their take on “Bend of the River,” with Jimmy Stewart starring alongside Jack.
Jack and Jimmy “sing” a duet–attempting to sing would be a better description of what they produce!!
This is an absolutely wonderful and hilarious show! Listen and enjoy!
Note: At this point, Jack Benny immediately preceded the “Amos and Andy Show.”
