The Jack Benny Program and its legendary star are counted among the most dazzling jewels in the crown of American comedy. From its beginnings as an immensely popular radio program to its heyday on television, the daily trials and tribulations of the beloved comedian kept millions of fans laughing for over 30 years. Here at last are 18 long-lost episodes, unseen since their original broadcast, that have been lovingly restored by the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Jack, Don, Mary, Eddie Rochester Anderson and a constellation of guest stars are all here in this first-of-its-kind DVD collection of The Jack Benny Program.

At the time a hotly anticipated release, Shout! Factory carefully selected a number of episodes never before released on DVD along with several interesting appearances by Jack in newsreel footage and other "extra curricular" features. Among the episodes included, one of particular note is the exceptionally elusive Murder of Clayton Worthington in which Jack solves a murder with all of the suspects being played by Dick Van Dyke. For some reason, this episode never appears on any episode guide and has no entry on IMdB, meaning the only evidence of its existence is this box set. Other special episodes include George Burns, Ronald Coleman, and the much sought after Harry Truman episode. Here is found a singular collection of Jack Benny material and may there be future releases in Shout's future.
You will find reviews like this one for each of the collections listed above. May it be a useful tool to navigating the murky waters of Jack Benny DVD's. Also, be sure to watch for Jack Benny on Antenna TV.
Bonus features are nice, too, with snippets from Jack's many television specials. Now what CBS really needs to do is restore the entire 'Jack Benny Program' series. Benny was truly an original comedian, as funny on television as he had been for decades on radio. His ensemble cast, including Mel Blanc and Frank Nelson are well represented here, too.

Benny is as always great and so are his regulars (like Dennis Day and Rochester) as well as his guest stars, who manage to break him up on several occasions (an easy task with Benny's acute sense of the ridiculous). This is a must for all Jack Benny fans.
The International Jack Benny Fan Club should be proud.
