Jack Benny: Drawing a Blanc | [Jack Benny, Mel Blanc, Mary Livingstone, Phil Harris, Dennis Day, Eddie Anderson, Don Wilson]

Jack Benny: Drawing a Blanc

A woebegone old car, a harried department store clerk, a monosyllabic man in a sombrero, and a train announcer whose line ran somewhere between Orange County and the Twilight Zone are all memorable characters from The Jack Benny Program, and all the products of a single talented throat: Mel Blanc. "The Man of a Thousand Voices" was Carmichael the Polar Bear, who lived improbably in Jack's cellar.

Publisher's Summary

"Train leaving on track five for Anaheim, Azusa, and Cuc-amonga!"

A woebegone old car, a harried department store clerk, a monosyllabic man in a sombrero, and a train announcer whose line ran somewhere between Orange County and the Twilight Zone are all memorable characters from The Jack Benny Program, and all the products of a single talented throat: Mel Blanc.

"The Man of a Thousand Voices" was Carmichael the Polar Bear, who lived improbably in Jack's cellar. He was Professor LeBlanc, Jack's violin teacher, whose French accent seemed to mimic every wail of his pupil's tortured strings. He was Polly the Parrot, Jack's impudent bird, who was less interested in crackers than in putting his master in his place.

Come hear eight digitally re-mastered episodes starring Jack Benny, Mary Livingstone, Phil Harris, Dennis Day, Eddie 'Rochester' Anderson, and Don Wilson, and guess who Mel Blanc will pop up as next!
