The Jack Carson Show was a radio situation comedy that ran from 1943 until 1947, with Hollywood character actor Jack Carson playing a fictionalized version of himself as a none-too-bright movie star. Every week, he dealt with strange friends, neighbors and relatives in his hectic life in Hollywood.
Jack Carson was best known and most remembered for supporting roles as comic relief, often wisecracking know-it-alls who were undone by their own overconfidence. He played this type of role in movies such as Bringing Up Baby, Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Arsenic and Old Lace.
Occasionally, he was able to show his dramatic skills, in films such as Mildred Pierce, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and the James Mason-Judy Garland version of A Star is Born. This hilarious collection contains twenty half hour shows.
