: I've just listened to the "Phil Harris-Alice Faye" Christmas show where Jack Benny guests. Jack shows up at Phil's house to play Santa for the Harris daughters.
: For me, a real highlight of that show is the confrontation between Jack and Walter Tetley (who played the smart-aleck grocery delivery boy Julius Abruzzio).
: Listening to tough punk Julius insulting Jack is hilarious...as are Jack's reactions and comebacks.
: It's too bad that Jack and Tetley's "Julius" character didn't cross swords more often...It really WAS a funny combination!
You're quite right about Jack & Julius being a funny combination, however, I think it's a good thing that they didn't cross swords more often. To me it is plainly obvious that Julius is more suited to Phil & Frankie than Jack.
