Whenever I hear Jack Benny playing a different part on an anthology program like "Lux Radio Theatre", "The Ford Theatre", "The Hallmark Playhouse", etc., I'm always impressed at how disciplined he is, and how he seems to be taking his portrayal very seriously (even in a comedy)
all i have to say is that it all depends on style. Bob Hope was great at what he did...i wouldn't expect him to be dead serious at anytime while the camera or the microphone is on no matter what he's doing...because of this, i wouldn't expect a dramatic program to be "normal" if someone like Bob Hope is the guest.
