: : I liked Jack in his spoof of Jeckel and Hyde. What a Performance!!!

: : g

: Yeah! Or is that, perfooooorrrrrrmance? ;-)
: After I got off here for the 2nd time, I remembered yet another parody, and that was "The Lost Weekend" with Ray Milland, dated March 10, 1946. You should hear Phil playing the part of the sober older brother! Funny, funny!

I find it amazing that many times Jack was able to get the ACTUAL star of the parodied film as a guest star....to help make fun of his or her own movie!
If Jack was alive and still performing today (not taking into account what his REAL age would be, of course!), I doubt if he would be as successful in getting many of TODAY'S movie stars as guests to make fun of their own films.....so many of today's film actors and actresses take themselves (and their films) so darn SERIOUSLY!
