Episode Summary

EDIT
Isaac Stern Boosts Jack's Morale
AIRED:
Jack's latest violin lesson ends badly when Professor LeBlanc attacks him, slits his own wrists and jumps out of the window. Finally realizing he'll never be a good violinist, Jack goes into a funk. To boost his confidence, Rochester pretends to record Benny playing a tune so he can hear how he sounds to listeners. Instead of playback, Isaac Stern, who's hidden in the closet, plays the same song. Delighted with how wonderful he sounds, Jack races to a recording studio to cut a record. The equipment begins smoking and Jack blames the lousy engineer. Benny discovers what Rochester has been doing and thanks him for the effort. For an encore, Stern is joined onstage by pianist Alexander Zakin for Polonaise No. 1 in D Major by Wieniawski.moreless

  • This is not the third episode in the sixth season.

    There was a episode guest starring Peggy King and Art Linkletter. In the monolouge he says it is his third show of the season, he referrences the two person show of Noel Coward and Mary Martin being the night before, he says his guest star in two weeks will be Issac Stern and he says Halloween will be "next week." This would indicate the third episode starring Peggy King and Art Linkletter aired October 23, 1955. Since this needs to be at least one hundred words long, I need to say more about it, but this is all I can think to say.moreless
