I enjoyed reading Joan Benny's book about her father. I wonder if any of the other (post 1940) main cast members had children (I think Dennis Day had several and Phil Harris had at least one)? Did they mingle with each other because of their relationship of their fathers to Jack Benny, or did their own thing? And what about the cast members' wives? Several times during the shows, wives are mentioned, particularly Alice Faye. I heard one program recently in which Mrs. Wilson pinch hits for Don, and does a great job, if it was indeed her. Dennis and Rochester are supposed to be single, but were not in real life. Do the children (assuming the wives have passed away) get together? Thanks. P.S. I know you are "up to your eyeballs in research," Laura, so there is no rush to respond to this post.
