In full: "Jack Benny/with producers Bill/Pine and Bill Thomas./Their pictures were released/by Paramount./Ronald/Reagan starred in three/of their pictures". Vaudeville comedian Jack Benny (1894-1974), born Benjamin Kubelsky, hosted a popular radio show from 1933, moving The Jack Benny Program smoothly to TV (1950-1965). His comic image as a tone-deaf, penny-pinching bachelor contradicted the real Benny, a philanthropist, devoted husband and competent violinist. He appeared in over 25 movies, the most critically acclaimed being To Be Or Not To Be (1942). Minor surface creases (most not evident head-on). Light "silvering" of image. Overall, fine condition.
