Fun to see OTR favorites
6 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite what the other review said about this movie not being shown on television, this movie has been shown on AMC and can be found for sale by some collectors on the web. I purchased it and found it charming mostly to see Peary as Gildersleeve and Thompson as The Old Timer and Don Wilson gets off a Jell-O gag. It is better than some of the OTR movies, but if you aren't a fan of OTR you probably won't get much enjoyment out of the film. Even at that it can still be enjoyed if you aren't too politically correct to enjoy Hillbilly jokes and references to things like Revenooers and Moonshine and the like. There is fun music, dancing and all the type of things that were common in fun little fluff comedies of the 40s. But really if you don't know the characters from OTR you'll miss out on most of the fun. The Characters are all second stringers woven into one story. The Old Timer and Gildersleeve from Fibber McGee, Don Wilson from Jack Benny and so on.
