There are several of the classic TV comedians (both living and deceased) who have web sites and merchandise for sale...and these are authorized by either the comedian himself or his family/estate. Sid Caesar, Bob Hope and Red Skelton each have their own authorized web site, and each site offers authorized videos of excerpts/sketches from their TV shows.
Does anyone know if there are any plans to offer authorized Jack Benny videos for sale? I particularly think that it would be great to offer material from Jack's color NBC-TV specials on video. Those old Public Domain kinescopes from the 1950's are fun to watch, but I would love to see a nicely-packaged "official" Jack Benny video set, with program material in pristine quality.
