Episode Summary

EDIT
Helene Francois Show
AIRED:
Jack's ancient Maxwell breaks down in Beverly Hills while Rochester is driving him to the studio. The radiator erupts steam, the headlight falls out, and the hood flaps like a bird's wing. In his monologue, Benny discusses Christmas presents for his cast and crew. Jack introduces Helene Francois, a French singer he says he heard in a New York nightclub, who performs "All My Love." Don Wilson comes out dressed in beret and velvet coat to appear "continental" and impress Miss Francois. Jack brings back Lynette Bryant, the poker-faced girl his previous program's hillbilly segment, for a chat. Jujitsu expert Leon Salvadore, who supposed can throw anyone within 12 seconds faces six burly men from the gym. They promptly beat the heck out of him.moreless
