Countdown to Christmas: Jack Benny goes "Christmas Shopping" (1957)

Jack Benny's on-air reputation, forged first on radio, then on television, was that of a miser who was loathe to spend big for any reason. In this holiday offering from The Jack Benny Program, Jack, like everyone else, sallies forth to buy Christmas gifts for his friends, including his valet, Rochester (Eddie Anderson). Mel Blanc guest stars in this 1957 episode.

Jewish Life TV airs the series every now and then, so this episode is bound to show up there before Christmas.

Rating: A.
