There is an article on just this subject in the February-May 2001 issue of The Jack Benny Times. One anecdote that comes to mind was that Groucho and Jack were to have lunch late in 1974, but Jack didn't show. Initially Groucho was angry, but later found out that it was because Jack had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and was gravely ill. He felt badly for being angry under the circumstances, and at someone whom he considered "a nice man"...an honor bestowed to precious few by Groucho.
