Fun Wedding Night Comedy
12 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this Hal Roach short - there are lots of laughs and the actors are great. The story starts out with a newlywed couple (Jeanette Loff and Eddie Foy Jr.)leaving the church. All they want is a happy wedding night but they keep getting into trouble. First her dress catches on fire, then they get a speeding ticket, and when they finally get back to their apartment Benny comes to visit with all his sailor friends. The highlight of this film is definitely Jeanette singing "Now That We're Alone". She was a beautiful and talented actress who died tragically young. You can watch Benny From Panama on TCM and on You Tube so try to watch it.
