  • Series Synopsis: Jack Carson played himself, a Los Angeles actor with Milwaukee roots. He fancied himself as a ladies' man and had an enormous ego. The show was played strictly for laughs. There were some great songs to be heard when Jack himself sang or teamed up with young Norma Jean Nilsson, who played his next-door neighbor.
