: I am curious if Jack's show ever experienced any censorship. Censorship was a major problem of movies during the forties and I recall that Edgar Bergman and Charlie McCarthy had trouble with a Mae West show.Have there ever been any sexual induendos on the Benny show that was considered under the parameters of too risque for the Hays dept? Considering the to do with shock jocks such as Howard Stern, Benny's show was prim and proper in comparison.

<< I just realized that many of the shows had adultery type scenes especially Mary playing the adulteress in some of the Captain O'Benny scenes. In the forties the censors frowned upon adultery as a topic.
