I am glad to know Jack Benny was human when he made his share of faux pas. One of my favorites was when he was doing a parody of "High Noon." He said, "Let's go, Mary...er...Amy." Then, as fate would have it, he was supposed to talk with an "old timer" (Dennis Day), claiming, "I need help...." The audience howled because he fluffed his earlier line, and Mr. Day, I assume trying to keep in character, replied, "You sure do." The audience went crazy. Now you know why I love old time radio over sanitized TV!
