  • Episode Description
  • While Benny is getting a haircut, he reads that director Gregory Ratoff is planning a new movie starring Irene Dunne and Vincent Price. Jack thinks he'd be perfect playing against Irene Dunne. He calls Ratoff, then Dunne, and tries to get them fire Price and give him the part. When that doesn't work, Jack invites himself to Dunne's house for the first rehearsal. Benny disrupts the proceedings by cracking walnuts and fluffing the tiny role they gave him read.moreless

    • Irene: (asking aboutThe Horn Blows at Midnight) Jack, did they ever make that film? Jack: Well, of course. And it did great business: it played 8 weeks at the Lowe's Belgium Congo, 10 weeks at Warner's Pakistan, and 16 weeks at Grauman's Chinese--the original one in Kwang-cho-foo.
