HOLLYWOOD, May 28 — JACK WARNER has had his checkbook out all the time he’s been in New York, buying plays like mad. He paid a quarter of a million dollars for “Chicken Every Sunday,” the Phil and Julius Epstein play. He saw it and decided it would be a good vehicle for Jack Benny. With “Junior Miss” at $425,000, “The Wallflower” at $200,000 and “Chicken Every Sunday” all in one week, that isn’t bad!

From the Milwaukee Sentinel.
