Jack Carson came out of the vaudeville comedy circuit and carved out a niche as an arrogant, but ignorant, know-it-all in films and on his own radio comedy show. But he could walk on the dramatic side of the street in movies like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Mildred Pierce and in his appearances on Suspense. We'll hear him as a husband with murder on his mind in "Easy Money" (originally aired on CBS on November 7, 1946) and as a PR man whose stunt may turn deadly in "The One Millionth Joe" (originally aired on CBS on June 22, 1950). Plus, we'll hear a comedy courtesy of The Jack Carson Show (originally aired on CBS on January 8, 1947).
