Marilyn Monroe’s appearance on the Jack Benny Show, and Ed Sullivan’s Toastettes

From the 1950s magazine CheeseCake – An American Phenomenon is this two page spread with Ed Sullivan’s Toastettes and film snaps of Marilyn Monroe’s appearance on the Jack Benny show.

Here’s a quote that Marilyn said about Jack Benny and being on his show:

“”It was wonderful,” said MM, “You know, Mr. Benny at 39 has all the charm and poise of an older man.””

When Marilyn Monroe agreed to be on the Jack Benny Show, finally television had come of age and could compete with the movies. Cheesecake Pinups were on the new medium of television!
