I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 Christmas MOVIES.

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I AM HONEST! I REVIEW Christmas MOVIES AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN!

Nothing is hardly original on television. People steel ideas from other shows all the time. If you watch this episode of Jack Benny you will see how this Christmas Episode is still being ripped off today.

Nothing rings in the New Year quite like a few hearty laughs, and in this release featuring comedy legend Jack Benny, comedy fans can find out just how hilarious the holidays can be. As Christmas draws near the notoriously stingy funnyman takes a trip to the department store with his good pal Rochester. After Benny's penny-pinching personality draws the ire of a difficult saleslady, a masked robber finds that making off like a bandit isn't as easy as he may have thought when an encounter with the quick-witted comic throws a wrench in his perfect plan. Later, when Benny's plans for New Year's Eve fall through, it's Rochester to the rescue to help kick off the New Year right.

Trust me there is more laughs a minute than most shows on the air today. Watch and enjoy!
