Liberace and Jack Benny

My father enjoys quite a few of the old movies and television shows from the 1950s and 1960s.  It was through him that I got to know who Jack Benny was, who the Marx brothers were, who Abbott and Costello were and quite a bit more.  I think that all of my siblings know the “Your money or your life” routine quite well. 

Here are two pioneers of television, Liberace and Jack Benny appearing together.  In this sketch, Liberace and Jack Benny play the theme song to the Jack Benny Show.  Needless to say, Liberace’s accompaniament is rather flashy, don’t you think?  What do you think of Jack Benny’s jacket and violin?
