Re: Benny vs. Allen


I have that episode.
You can try Jack Benny’s show from January 24, 1937, or February 7, 1937, or Town Hall Tonight from February 10, 1937.
Jack plays “The Bee” on his show of February 28, 1937.

Of course, I don't see that episode in our library! Any other episode dates that might provide clips?

It began on Town Hall Tonight on December 30, 1936, when Stuart Canin played “The Bee” on his violin, and Fred made cracks about Benny’s violin playing. They traded barbs one each others’ shows for weeks thereafter.

Someone on our TikTok page asked about the Allen-Benny feud from 1937. Can anyone identify specific episodes from that initial "feud" I can peruse to find some clips to share?
