Episode Summary

Jack is sweeping the set; he explains that anything he saves he can keep. He has Mary running the spotlight and Bob Crosby building sets. During his monologue on his movie career, a girl cartwheels across the stage; Jack says he promised the girl's father he'd get her TV work. She turns up again during the later sketch. Bob Crosby sings "I Don't Care If the Sun Don't Shine." The long anticipated parody on Gaslight (called Autolight) premieres. Jack is the hateful husband who tries to drive his wife, Barbara Stanwyck, insane with shenanigans like turning pictures upside down and telling her that she did it.moreless
