No. It was a 6-week version of the same show Benny performed on the road and in Las Vegas. It was hurt by a lengthy newspaper strike, which slowed ticket sales. Irving Fein, in his memoir, recalled that he had to give out hundreds of complimentary tickets. He called it "an emotional low point" in Benny's career.


: Anyone have any information on this listing, which I stumbled across on IBDB.COM? Jack Benny and Jane Morgan are listed in the cast. Was it filmed?
