For the song “Gee, I Wish I Was Back In The Army”, there is the lyric, “Jolson, Hope and Benny all for free”. This is a reference to three wartime entertainers: Al Jolson, Bob Hope and Jack Benny. The original words were “Crosby, Hope and Jolson all for free”, but the lyric was changed because with Bing Crosby in the cast the original lyric would break the fourth wall.
