    This show was my favorite Jack Benny episode. Some of Clint's many talents were shown. He's funny and has a great singing voice. I don't know why he didn't record more albums. I've been, and still am, a huge fan of Clint Walker's. All of his fans should see this show. I love how Clint towers over Jack, really towers over Jack. Clint had beautiful blue eyes then and they are still beautiful. It's a shame Jack didn't have Clint back on his show. Clint was a poet himself, but never published any of his poems.Even though Jack was only "39" I was surprised he was able to do what he did to Clint at the end of the show. It was a surprise for Clint too. The whole episode was great and worth watching again and again.
