Episode Summary

EDIT
Claudette Colbert and Basil Rathbone Show
AIRED:
Jack wants a dramatic role on an episode of Robert Montgomery Presents Your Lucky Strike Theatre that's already set to star Claudette Colbert and Basil Rathbone. He goes to the sponsor's office and pleads with producer Montgomery to dump Rathbone and use him instead. Not taking no for an answer, Jack crashes a rehearsal of the show at Colbert's apartment; Montgomery gives him a small part to read just to shut him up. Benny proves to be such a disruptive pest, Rathbone calls him a "schlemiel" and storms out.moreless
