    The stars' flight was on 20 June 1951.

    Jack Benny's daughter's name is Joan.

    "Patricia Wymore" should read Patrice Wymore.

    Other people seen in front of the plane include Marjorie Reynolds, actress Benay Venuta, June Bruner and Dolores Gay.

    Thanks for identifying those performers for us jamied. Keep up the good work!
