Jack Benny with Johnnie Ray

This is the third clip of an old Jack Benny Show in 1953. It is about Jack's reluctance to pay Johnnie Ray the price Ray's manager set for his appearance on Jack's show. In the opening monologue which is not on this clip, Jack discusses his long ago football days.  In the clip preceding this one there are some hilarious scenes about Rochester's day off. The final clip features Danny Thomas, Benny and Ray doing a bit together to the end the show. I remember watching this (possibly live) in 1953 on my family's first television set that my Dad purchased that same year when we lived in Norris, Tennessee.
