The Jack Benny Program & Have Gun, Will Travel

For Mother’s Day, Dennis Day sings the ballad “Little Mother of Mine” on “The Jack Benny Show.” On this episode, the gang is flying back to Los Angeles from New York. At the time such a voyage was a rare treat. It took a mere 18 hours; about half as long as a similar trip by train. Then on “Have Gun Will Travel,” Paladin thinks he’s doing his Chinese friends a favor by exposing a con game as old as the hills. But there’s a lot more to it than meets the eye of even the sharpest mind in the Old West.
