    Some good moments, but not as funny as the typical show, at least in my little book. That's probably because the centerpiece, a take-off on the Jack Paar show, has dated. Benny spoofs Paar's mannerisms as host of The Tonight Show. Trouble is you have to be my age or older to recall Paar's stint as host (1957-62). The humor may have been timely for 1962, but is now badly dated. Also, Hugh Downs, Paar's announcer, was known for his erudition, which he spoofs here. But it's not very funny. Anyway, the best segment may be Rock Hudson's intro from the audience and the audience's echoing response. Rock's little kissing competition against Jack is also good for a chuckle. Meanwhile, Dennis Day gets a brief goofy appearance, while Don Wilson takes the short end of the stick against Downs with good humor. All in all, a lesser entry, except for fans of movie idol Hudson.
