January 25: Jack Benny Marries Sadye Marks

January 25: Jack Benny Marries Sadye Marks


Sadye Marks looked beautiful in her wedding dress. At least Jack thought she did. Jack was crazy about her, and would marry her on January 25, 1927. Sadye Marks would change her name. If you know the Golden Age of Radio, you know her as Mary... Mary Livingstone. And Jack? Jack Benny, of course.

Sadie was a cousin of the Marx brothers.
