Beloved American character actor Frank Morgan plays himself in this offbeat film. Morgan, who thinks he's not getting the respect he deserves, convinces studio head K.F. (Leon Ames) to let him produce his own movie. The result is a curious and jumbled collection of short subjects, including several musical numbers, a sentimental look at "Our Old Car", and a segment about badminton. All shorts are strung together with shots of Morgan and Ames watching the movie in a screening room.
Morgan is his usual befuddled self, Ames is classy and dignified as usual, and some of the shorts are mildly entertaining. The musical numbers are very dated, and the badminton short just goes on and on and on. "Our Old Car" is pretty good for lovers of nostalgia. The final gag is quite funny, if you can wait that long. Good movie for die-hard Morgan fans, tough sledding for others.
