+ Jack Pearl, born Jack Perlman (October 29, 1894 – December 25, 1982), was a vaudeville performer and a star of early radio. Pearl's radio career included stints as the host of The Lucky Strike Hour (1932–34) and The Jack Pearl Show, which ran from late 1936 through early 1937, sponsored by Raleigh and Kool Cigarettes. The success of his first radio series brought him to the attention of MGM. He starred as his character in one feature film, Meet the Baron (1933) with Jimmy Durante, Edna May Oliver, ZaSu Pitts and the Three Stooges. He also appears in Ben Bard and Jack Pearl (1926), a film of their vaudevile act made in the DeForest Phonofilm sound-on-film process, and Hollywood Party (1934). With the cancellation of his second radio series, Pearl found himself struggling for work. He continued in radio with shows like, Jack and Cliff (1948) and The Baron and the Bee (1952), a quiz show, but he never recaptured his mid-1930s fame. In 1934, a juvenile novel, Jack Pearl as Detective Baron Munchausen, was based on his radio scripts. He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his radio work. Pearl died in New York in 1982.-WikiPedia
