Here, in what PW termed an entertaining and moving manner, he reveals the secrets of his tremendous appeal as his daughter supplements the text with accounts of the familys home life. According to PW , The daughters sensibilities, at least as expressed here, contrast sharply with the fathers bighearted outlook on life.

Photos.Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.From Library JournalAbout half of this book consists of an unpublished autobiography that Jack Benny wrote in the late 1960s- the remainder comprises reminiscences and commentary by Joan Benny. Joans feeling for her mother, Mary Livingstone, could best be described as ambivalent, and her life (including three marriages) hasnt been perfect, but the love and admiration she feels for her father is apparent.

By virtually all accounts Benny was a nice, pleasant man, and those same adjectives also apply to this book. The best Benny biography is still The Jack Benny Show by Milt Josefsberg ( LJ 3/15/77), a long-time writer for Benny. But Sunday Nights is better than his manager Irving Feins Jack Benny: An Intimate Biography ( LJ 12/15/75) or Mary Livingstone Benny and others Jack Benny ( LJ 2/15/78). Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 7/90.- John Smothers, Monmouth Cty.
