Last night I saw the opera "Rigoletto" and thoroughly
enjoyed it. At one point, they began singing a tune
that was so familiar to me, but I couldn't quite place
where I heard it before. Suddenly, I realized what it
was and I leaned over to my husband and whispered, "It's
a Lucky Strike commercial!!". In the episode dated 4/25/48,
entitled "Charlie's Aunt", soprano Dorothy Kirsten appeared on
the JB show and sang a song from "Rigoletto" with the
Sportmen Quartet. Of course all the words were changed
to advertise Lucky Strikes....it's about the best commercial
I've ever heard on all the JB shows. Even when we go
to the opera, we can't escape Jack! ha ha ha
