In March 1943, when the film was in wide release, a lawsuit brought by a group of lawyers from New Haven, Connecticut charged that this comedy "showed the legal profession in a disreputable light." The complainants asked for the movie to be withdrawn, but their plea was thrown out by Connecticut Superior Court Judge Patrick O'Sullivan. See more »
This is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen -- not surprising, since it stars Jack Benny, one of the funniest stars ever. Jack is believable both as a nice guy and as a meanie. You might think his mean acts wouldn't be as funny, but the way he does them is the funniest part of the movie. And there is always a newspaper photographer to record it. The movie's only drawback is that it is so short, less than an hour. Usually, especially today, movies drag on too long and wear out their welcome. Jack Benny has never worn out his welcome. This movie should be on DVD. Perhaps a box DVD set with other under-appreciated Jack Benny movies.
