From New York, the cast present this show. While Phil did his thing on the Jack Benny show, also in New York, the premise is that the family will make appearances for the March of Dimes for Rexall. On the way to the studio,Frankie is missing, but instead of concern or sympathy he gets insults fired at him from Alice and Willie. When Frankie manages to catch up, he tries to draw Phil in on a racket to make money, but it actually deals with parking meters, and the only people who will be taken are our two heros if they actually go through with it.
Alice sings, I Care for You As You Care for Me. In the studio building, a glimpse at a variety of radio dramas are overheard. Not certain which is the right studio, Phil steps into the middle of a game show where he slides into his trademark song, That’s What I Like About the South.
Phil has to run before he learns that he has won the tallent contest. Back in their hotel room, Phil, Alice and the girls relax, but it’s not room service that gets delivered, but all of Phil’s prizes. Lifetime supplies of food, furniture, appliances, and even a piano. Not a good time or place to have such a stroke of good luck.
Note: I was hoping I could find the run of the Jack Benny shows that coincide with this time frame, but I don’t think they exist. If someone has them, I’d love to hear from you.
