    • Jack worked as a bookkeeper for Samuel Goldwyn Studios and then as a controller for Hopalong Cassidy Productions, but he was told by a doctor that if he continued to stare at small numbers for much longer that he would lose the sight of his good eye. He made a deal with a desperate movie director friend and offered to get his movies financed if he would give him an acting part in his movies thus launching his long career in show business.
