Isn't the internet great? I found a neat film clip from 1942, with Jack Benny doing his show from a military base. It runs several minutes.

Thanks for this! This is very cool. It's obvious, though, that Jack & Mary's parts were re-done in a quiet studio and edited with the live footage (very cleverly I might add). I've got the original show on MP3 so I can confirm the difference.

Nonetheless, this is an incredible document for those of us not old enough to have seen a live radio show...

thanks!
