: 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?
According to Irving Fein's biography,Morrow entered the service and Beloin was offered a more lucrative motion picture contract.
