No News is Good News (1943)

** (out of 4)

Weak Robert Benchley short has him "addressing" a movie audience and answering various questions that are asked of him. A couple of these questions deal with the evils of inflation and why elephants aren't used in war. As you'd expect, we have Benchley delivering his own style of comedy, which to me has always been hit and miss and this here is certainly a miss. In some ways it appears the comic was trying to be somewhat straight here because the comedy, while a miss, at times also seems like he wasn't even going for laughs. The movie remains mildly entertaining because you can tell there is an effort going on but the laughs just aren't here.
