Let's See More of the Hillbilly Band
25 September 2010 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

High point is the Hillbilly Band with Jack on the fiddle and a hilariously deadpan little girl as his "wife" (I'm surprised that one got past the censors). Actually the Band is pretty good when they cut the comedy for a few musical stanzas. Also a funny bit from versatile Mel Blanc as a cabby and watch for Benny and Blanc unable to stay "in character" because of a ridiculous line. Jack also gets one of his extra-long exasperated "takes" when Crosby interrupts a bad joke. On the other hand, I'm not sure who Dorothy Shay is, and that's likely a reason why the better-known Crosby is also on the show.

All in all, a pretty good show to open the 1951 season, with Jack in fine form.
