2 editions published in 1948 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
A man sits in a woman statue's lap. An intertitle appears: "Mother was the loveliest woman in the world, and mother wanted everything to be lovely." Mother stands in a room, dressed in a fur coat. There is a closeup of her face. A man holding a ukelele stands outside the house, appearing to court her. The next intertitle appears: "Mother always said she could have her pick." Mother sits at a table with a man. The next cut shows a man standing under her apartment window. Mother looks out the window, a bored expression on her face. Various men try to woo her by bringing presents under her window. She ignores them. The next intertitle: "And she picked father." Adults acting as children play in a yard, suck their thumbs, play with dolls and guns, and swing. They progressively age with each successive sequence: next they are shown as flirting young gentlemen and ladies, then they appear older. An older mother puts on a hat and leaves the house. The "children" play again. Many hats are thrown out a window after one "boy" steals father's beard and tears it up. A man's hat is stuck in a tree; the man uses a stick to get it down, and the hat becomes a woman in the tree. At the end of the film, father's portrait is upside down with closed eyes. Mother appears dressed in father's suit, holding a bridal bouquet

The Jack Benny hour ( visu )
2 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Jack Benny's entrance takes so long that Bob Hope gets there first. Bob introduces Elke Sommer. Benny's monologue concerns the fact that the show is in color (the stage manager chokes him from time to time to keep his cheeks rosy) and that it is called a special; Benny asserts that it's not a special, it's two half hours put together; a special is when coffee goes from 85 cents to 74 cents. The sketch concerns "elements popular on television today," and parodies The Munsters, Bewitched, The fugitive ("the doctors are after me; I voted for Medicare"), Secret agent, My mother the car, Peyton Place and Hullabaloo. The Beach Boys sing California girls. Jack and Bob drive up in a dune buggy dressed as long-haired surfers. Benny introduces Elke Sommer and goes on and on about her beauty, until she feels compelled to assert that she thinks that her physical appearance is over-emphasized and she thinks the fact she speaks five languages is far more important. She translates a phrase Benny heard over and over in Italy as "how can a man be so cheap?" Benny tells her she has 2 seconds to change costume if she wants to promote her new record album, which she accomplishes thanks to pre-recording. In a song-and-dance number, she sings He's a clown (to Jack) on a Madrid set. Jack's travel agent comes out to discuss his flight on Eastern Airlines in two weeks, mentioning the discount for his wife on the "family plan," and introducing 3 beautiful dumb stewardesses, 3 crew members, 3 chefs and 3 violinists who plan to serve him on the flight. Benny announces he is flying to London for a command performance for Queen Elizabeth, and recalls his previous command performances and previous visits to England. The Beach Boys sing Barbara Ann. In the sketch, Benny visits Walt Disney to ask for 110 free tickets to Disneyland for the people putting on this special. In exchange, Benny says he is going to do an Italian sex film with the Walt Disney approach on his sketch. The sketch follows, a parody of Marriage Italian style, with Elke Sommer playing the governess, Maria Poppini, culminating with a rendition of Mozzarella-provolone-Parmesan-ricotta to the tune of Supercalafragalisticexpialidocious. Disney sends his pet tiger over to get the free tickets back
