: All the show's jokes aside (e.g. Dennis negotiating with Jack over a raise and only ending up with a fifty cent raise), how much did these people make per radio show? I don't know enough about early 20th century pay scales for radio performers to know.
I don't know exactly how much Jack Benny made from starring in a national radio program, but I DO know that he made quite a tidy sum from his OTHER business....
...especially if Ronald Colman wanted starch in his shirts!
