The Sunshine Boys

Postby helloagain » Tue Apr 13, 2010 10:37 am

I bought a new DVD of The Sunshine Boys, in which Mr. Benny was originally cast, and it contains footage of makeup/wardrobe tests he did with Walter Matthau. Unfortunately, it is silent footage, but great to see. I haven't seen any other images of Jack from the film since he died. I remember a magazine published a photo of he and Matthau in costume. If I recall, Jack was wearing wire rim glasses and Walter Matthau was kissing him on the forehead. I can't help wondering what the film would have been like with Jack in the role George Burns eventually played. Are there any other stills or footage of Jack from this movie?
"Hey, Jackson, does Fred Allen always talk through his nose?"

"Yes, Phil. He's the only comedian who tells 'em and smells 'em at the same time!"
