Jack Benny 125 -- February 14, 2019

Happy Saint Valentine's Day, everyone.

I did not remember that Jack Benny, star of stage, screen, and radio, was born on Valentine's Day in 1894.  Today he would have been 125 years old.

Benny left his footprints in the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese on 13-January-1941. "My heart belongs to Mary (his wife, Mary Livingstone) but my feet belong to Grauman." I love his radio show.

His best movie was To Be or Not To Be with Carole Lombard, but he made many others.  This was the only Jack Benny movie directed by Ernst Lubitsch. 

I took this on 18-July-2009.  DSCN4146.
