  • Episode Description
  • In his monologue, Jack explains it's tradition for a guest to get a sample of the sponsor's product, so Dinah will get a carton of Luckies; Jack's expecting a Chevrolet when he does Dinah's show. In a cowboy sketch, Dinah's forced to sing in a saloon to raise $2000 to pay off her mortgage or she'll have to marry bad guy Tombstone Harry. She performs "Blues in the Night," and "Ragtime Cowboy Joe" with the Sportsmen in the Luckies commercial. In a filmed segment, Buck Benny competes in a rodeo for the money, but loses. Angry Dinah tries to shoot Benny with his own screwy gun, but kills Harry instead. In the epilogue, Benny introduces Alan Hale, Jr. and Randy Stuart who premiere next week in Biff Baker USA on CBS for the same sponsor.moreless

    Notes (2)

    • This western sketch was restaged in the episode Ghost Town Western which aired 2/11/1962.

    • "Buck Benny" was an alias Jack used on his radio program when he portrayed himself as a rough and tough western cowboy. Buck Benny Rides Again was the title of the 1940 film comedy he made which featured Dennis Day, Eddie Anderson, Don Wilson, Phil Harris, and the voices of Mary Livingstone and Fred Allen.
