  • Notes

    • Eleanor Biggers Cole, the widow of Charlie Chan creator Earl Derr Cole, filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Jack Benny in October of 1960. She claimed the Dragon-net sketch used the Chan characters without permission. Cole sought an accounting of profits and damages, and asked that the defendants be restrained from future use of Chan without the proper authority.
