Some of you are in contact with the Jack Benny estate, so I'm wondering if you can help me on this....Where are those wonderful hour-long color TV specials that Jack starred in during the late 1960's and early 70's? Specials like "Jack Benny's Bag", "Jack Benny's New Look", "Jack Benny's First Farewell Special", "Jack Benny's 20th TV Anniversary Special" and others. These shows were VERY funny (in fact, much funnier than many of the later half-hour episodes of Jack's regular weekly series), but you NEVER see them around anymore....not on Cable TV, not on video or DVD...NOWHERE!!!! I know that NBC used clips from them when they had a tribute show to Jack hosted by Bob Hope, Johnny Carson and George Burns, but I'd love to see the complete programs. Does ANYBODY have ANY info on these specials?
