Have any of Benny's writers ever commented on why Jack Benny went from his team of Beloin & Morrow ('36-44?) to the four man group he used after WW II? Milt Josefberg said in his book that (if I recall correctly) Benny wanted to compete with Hope whose show had a much faster pace and whose scripts were spiked with many more laughs per page. Has anyone else ever commented?
