Originally hired to play a one-time guest spot as a porter on an episode of Jack Benny's radio show ("Train Ride to Hollywood", March 28, 1937), comic actor EDDIE ANDERSON (1905-1977) struck such a chord with audiences that his association with Benny lasted 20 years. Best known for his role as "Rochester", Benny's butler, Anderson also starred with Benny in the classic films Man About Town (1939), Buck Benny Rides Again (1940) and Love Thy Neighbor (1940). Anderson also appeared in Three Men on a Horse (1936). The screen's premier "comic gangster", stage and screen actor ALLEN JENKINS (1900-1974), born Alfred McGonegal, was a member in good standing of Hollywood's "Irish Mafia", which included actors James Cagney, Pat O'Brien, Matt McHugh and Jimmy Gleason. Jenkins, who made his film debut in 1931 in The Girl Habit, appeared in a long list of feature films through the 1970s, including I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang (1932), 42nd Street (1933), Dead End (1937), Destry Rides Again (1939), Ball of Fire (1941), Tortilla Flat (1942), Stage Door Canteen (1943), Pillow Talk (1959), It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963), Robin and the Seven Hoods (1964), I'd Rather Be Rich (1964), Doctor, You've Got To Be Kidding (1967) and The Front Page (1974, his last film). Jenkins also appeared in a number of TV shows and series, from Playhouse 90 in 1957 to several episodes of Bewitched (1971-1972). Filing holes at left edge. Toned. Lightly creased.
