Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack Referees a Wrestling Match
AIRED:
A charity event is being planned by the wives of several Hollywood stars and Jack is disappointed because he hasn't been asked to participate. When he drops by Milton Berle's house, the ladies (Evelyn (Phil) Silvers, Ruth (Milton) Berle, Eden (Groucho) Marx, Ann (Kirk) Douglas) hide all evidence because they don't want him playing his lousy violin in their show. Refusing to take "No" for an answer, Benny jumps at the chance to replace the canceling Burt Lancaster--as a wrestling referee. Knowing nothing about the sport, Jack takes a beating when he's caught between burly wrestlers Count Billy Varga and Gene Le Bell. After they've tossed him out of the ring, he gets angry.moreless

    A charity show is being planned and everyone wants Jack excluded. He tries everything he can do to volunteer. He has dropped by Milton Berle's home where Mrs. Berle, Mrs. Phil Silvers, Mrs Groucho Marx and Mrs. Kirk Douglas quickly hide any evidence they are working on the benefit. Jack is determined to work his way into the show when the call comes in that Burt Lancaster has to cancel. Jack is very quick to volunteer to stand in. He must referee a championship wrestling bout. Of course he is as good at that as he would have been playing his violin. It is really great to see the wives of these stars appearing without their husbands.As usual it is another fun show with Jack's prat falls.moreless
