On one program in the Forties, Robert Taylor fills in as guest host while Jack is on vacation. His real name: Spangler Arlington Braugh is mentioned several times in jest by Phil Harris. There is also some comments that it makes Taylor sound like "a ballet dancer." The insinuation tweeks the censor's nose at the time since homosexual references were taboo. There was some rumors about Taylor in his later marriage to Barbara Stanwyck and an attempt to put him in more masculine roles in westerns or dramas instead of romantic roles such as "Camille."
