AIRED:
Jack is bent out of shape because he hasn't been asked to be an emcee at the upcoming Academy Awards. He badgers George Seaton, the president of the Motion Picture Academy. Then he visits Jerry Wald, the producer of the telecast, and pesters him. To get rid of Benny, Wald says that if one of the five emcees cancels, Jack will be the first one he calls. One of the hosts of the ceremony is Jimmy Stewart, so Jack pays his "friend" a visit. Stewart's shooting on a movie set and Jack destroys numerous takes. Finally, the big ham takes over Jimmy's role and shows him how it's supposed to be done.moreless
