Vol 1: The Secret Word Is Jack
Jack Benny welcomes Groucho Marx in a 1955 episode of Benny's hit CBS show. The longtime friends really tear it up as they recreate Groucho's own popular NBC show, You Bet Your Life. The two legends had worked together in radio, although this would be their only television appearance together. Also on The Jack Benny Show, screen legend Humphrey Bogart makes a rare television appearance in 1953 and gets interrogated by Jack in a hilarious gangster spoof. When Bob Hope joins Jack for a 1954 episode, the two poke fun at Bob's successful "road" movies and are surprised by a couple of other comics along the way.
The Shows
The Jack Benny Show featuring Groucho Marx, 3rd April 1955. The Jack Benny Show featuring Humphrey Bogart, 25th October 1953. The Jack Benny Show featuring Bob Hope, 25th May 1954. The Golden Age of Comedy chronicles the early days of live American television, a time when a wildly creative group of comedic talents resurrected a dying art form - vaudeville. In the late 1940's and throughout the 50's, the variety show format became a television fixture and the comedians who had honed their craft on the vaudeville stage became TV's first superstars. But instead of a theatre with an audience of a thousand people, they now played to millions in living rooms across the country and later, internationally. And it was all done live! Time Life brings you classic original recordings of the very best and most memorable gags and routines from the greatest stars of the generation. The Golden Age of Comedy series features Bob Hope, Phil Silvers, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Buster Keaton, Groucho Marx, Abbott and Costello, Jack Benny, The Three Stooges and many more. Due to the age and nature of the film and video elements, you may notice occasional flaws in the image and sound quality. Whenever possible, we have sought out and restored the original materials to ensure the best possible quality.
