Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack's Life Story
AIRED:
20th Century Fox wants to film Jack's life story and this news swells Benny's head more than usual. When Jack goes to the studio, he runs into the director of his flop The Horn Blows at Midnight; the man's now a parking lot attendant. Benny meets with Buddy Adler, head of production, ready to produce, direct and star in his epic story. Adler has something very different in mind that doesn't involve Jack. Benny hits the ceiling when he hears he won't even be starring; Van Johnson will. However, they do have a part for Jack: playing his own father.moreless
