Storyline

Radio star Jack Benny, intending to stay in New York for the summer, is forced by the needling of rival Fred Allen to prove his boasts about roughing it on his (fictitious) Nevada ranch. Meanwhile, singer Joan Cameron, whom Jack's fallen for and offended, is maneuvered by her sisters to the same Nevada town. Jack's losing battle to prove his manhood to Joan means broad slapstick burlesque of Western cliches. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Mr. Benny (Greatest Radio Comedian of All Time) in a fabulous comedy!
8 June 2002 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Mr. Benny is fabulous, as are Rochester, Phil Harris, Dennis Day, Andy Devine and the rest of this wonderful cast. My favorite scene: Jack recites a poem around the campfire at Andy's ranch. I won't spoil it; you've got to hear it for yourself, and the last line is possibly the best in any movie comedy EVER.
