Worth 1,000 Words: ANDY DEVINE & DON WILSON Fly TWA

THE DATE ON THE BACK IS STAMPED JUNE 26, 1939 (a mere 70 years ago), and in those days, these two radio and film personalities were known for their voices and girth. In '39, both ANDY DEVINE and DON WILSON were regulars on THE JACK BENNY PROGRAM on radio, Don being Jack's announcer. This rarely seen press photo's caption states: Andy Devine, he of the funny voice, and Don Wilson, he of the pleasing voice on Jack Benny's radio program, arrived on the T.W.A. Sky Master today (Friday) from Hollywood to aid Jack Benny in the taking over of Waukegan. The world premiere of Benny's picture, "Man About Town," will be held Sunday in the North Shore town.--T.W.A. News Bureau [from Steve Crum's showbiz memorabilia collection]
