Jack Benny in his prime. However, the footage looks and sounds as if it were recorded directly from olden day television, complete with Lucky Strike tobacco commercials full in the face. They make it patently obvious his shows were supported by that very tobacco company. Not suitable for young impressionable minds to actually watch these too-merry ads that keep replaying after every single episode, that is, almost every 25 minutes, replete with catchy Lucky Strike jingles that promise bliss with every puff of the most "elegant" tobacco. Even my father, for whom I bought this DVD, was initially taken aback by those cigarette ads. That said, the jokes on the Jack Benny Show are clean, timeless, and as jokes should be, though they oftentimes roll right by me, unless I have my dad explain the context of the time of Mr. Benny, a true comedian to the last. Here's to you, Mr. Benny!
