Joe McDoakes, scientists and doctors are searching for a cure for his allergy. Among other things,he uses a special spray in his bedroom and anti-sneeze powders on his food. He then finds out he is allergic to his wife's dandruff, and finally wraps her head and shoulders (not a plug for a popular shampoo)in a special breathing apparatus.

Another Winning McDoakes

So You Think You're Allergic (1945)

*** (out of 4)

Third entry in the Joe McDoakes series has George O'Hanlon playing our hero. This time out Joe is suffering from allergies and each morning he wakes up sneezing and this continues until he's back to bed. I prefer the later shorts in this series but for these early entries this one here is pretty good. As normal for this point in the series, we not only get O'Hanlon doing his comedy bit but Knox Manning doing the narration. What works best in this short as some of the backstory entries as we learn how allergies have effected the McDoakes family throughout time. The sequence about the very first man to walk past hay and sneeze was a good one as is what happens when a future McDoakes tries to solve the problem. We also get some "facts" told to us by Manning but many of these are extremely out of date so it's somewhat funny seeing what people were being told in 1945 compared to what we know today.
