Violin-playing comedian Jack Benny is backed up by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of Leonard Bernstein, during a benefit concert at Carnegie Hall in New York on April 8, 1959. The concert was for the benefit of the orchestra's pension fund. Benny has made similar appearances with other orchestras for the benefit of their musicals funds. Through appearances at which he donated his services, more than $1,600,000 has been raised in the last several years for various charities. (UPI Photo/Files)
