Using the book "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask" as a springboard for his special, Jack Benny's guests include the book's author Dr. David Reuben, Lucille Ball, Phil Harris, George Burns, Dionne Warwick, John Wayne, and a cameo by Bob Hope. Songs include Harris singing "That's What I Like About the South" (which Benny deconstructs), and Dionne Warwick singing "I Got Love" and "Who Gets the Guy". Sketches depict Benny's start in show business, and how he met George Burns, as well as a look at his mythical youth as a romantic leading man.Written by
Although Lucy says here her first film was called 'Goldwyn Girl', Ball's first film was actually titled 'Kid Millions' (1934), although she was indeed one of the film's Goldwyn Girls. They were named after motion picture producer Samuel Goldman, who founded a production company that released film through United Artists, and later RKO. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz later bought RKO studios and renamed it Desilu. In reality, Benny's first feature film was 'Chasing Rainbows' in 1930. The first time Jack Benny and Lucille Ball really appeared together was on television in 1952. See more »
