Jack Benny - January 4, 1942 - New Year's Eve Party at the Biltmore Bowl

Jack gets ready for a New Year's Eve party at the Biltmore, where Phil's band will be playing. There's a sarcastic waiter, who for some reason isn't played by Frank Nelson. An odd little episode.

At the party, Jack and Mary also meet fictional film star "Rodney Dangerfield", a parody of macho movie stars who was referred to a number of times during the series. Some years later, the comedian Jack Roy borrowed the name and never looked back.
