Episode Summary

Jackie Gleason Show
Jack and Rochester are in New York, relaxing in the penthouse suite of the luxurious St. Regis Hotel. They're staying for free, masquerading as painters. Whenever the doorbell rings, they put on painters' caps and toss drop cloths around the room. Jack's awaiting Jackie Gleason for a business meeting. Before Gleason enters the room, the June Taylor Dancers prance in and give him an huge introduction. Gleason and Benny are forming a production company to make movies. Jack thinks the films will star him; Jackie has heard about The Horn Blows at Midnight and has different ideas. When the hotel manager calls to say he's coming up, Rochester starts throwing out the drop cloths and paint buckets. Benny puts a cap on Gleason and tells him he's the foreman.moreless
