Jack Benny (a favorite of mine) in the B 24 named after his movie "Buck Benny Rides Again"

In The Jack Benny Program’s 1936-37 season, writers instituted “Buck Benny Rides Again,” a spoof of movie westerns that would go on to become one of Benny’s most popular running segments.

In 1940 it was crafted into a movie musical, and was a decent success, making the 10th largest revenue for a movie that year.

In the movie, Jack in conned into going to Nevada, and he brings his entourage into the movie with him, including his pet polar bear, Carmichael.

It was just a week ago that I posted Jack Benny christening a B 24 in Libya on a USO tour
