Jack Benny in Australia ~ 1964
Guest Stars: Johnny O'Keefe, Lorrae Desmond and the Rudenko Brothers
Rare Australian TV Appearence
This 60-min special, filmed in 1964, is a real rarirty that aired only in Australia. Jack is in top form here, at the tail end of a multi-week series of performances throughout Australia. The guest stars are, naturally enough, well-known Australian celebrities that aren't all that well known in the U.S. Lorrae Desmond later guest starred on the Jack Benny TV show.
Note: musical numbers removed due to copyright restrictions, except for the violin duet of "Getting to Know You" that Benny had performed so many times with Giselle MacKenzie, here performed with a young Australian violin prodigy.
