Storyline

It's Fibber and Molly's 20th anniversary and they want to throw a big party. But when everyone declines their invitation, they decide to go on a second honeymoon instead. After one night at the broken down Ramble Inn, where they spent their first honeymoon, they decide to go across the lake to a swanky (and expensive) lodge, where they bump into their old friends Edgar Bergan, Charlie McCarthy, Gildersleeve, and Mrs. Uppington, so the party is on again. The only problem is, how will Fibber pay for all of this? Written by fibbermac

Trivia

Fibber's comment about "the local 400" refers to the supposed social elite of New York City in the late 19th century. The term was coined by Ward McAllister, based on the number of people that supposedly could fit in the ballroom of Mrs William Backhouse Astor. See more »

A Delightful Turn of the Old Dial
13 April 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

What a delightful surprise—the radio characters are just as funny on the screen as off. Middle-age couples have seldom starred in Hollywood features, but the Jordan's make engaging anchors of their small town Fibber McGee and Molly. I love the barbs McGee trades with the rotund Gildersleeve (Peary), carry-overs from the radio show. Then there's the ethically challenged Cadwallader (Gordon) as McGee's rival. Will he manage to come between radio's best-known married couple. The barbs are amusing without being mean-spirited. And, of course, there's the wooden little gentleman Charlie McCarthy trading quips with the best of them, or should I say Bergen trading quips. Sometimes it's hard to tell. Even the intellectually challenged Mortimer Snerd makes the most of his face time.

What really makes this comedic mix work is Allan Dwan's expert staging and direction. That cliff-hanging climax really winds things up with a bang. Too bad Dwan is almost forgotten. His Up in Mabel's Room (1944) and Getting Gertie's Garter (1945) remain two of the funniest bedroom farces of that period. Note here how he works a bevy of shapely girls into the visuals, adding eye appeal to the middle-age stars, plus of course the sparkling Ginny Simms. Oh sure, much of the humor comes from a gentler time when small town America was still the norm. Yet, I defy even today's young sophisticates not to crack more than a few smiles at the nonsensical goings-on of this delightful little programmer.
