So You Think You're a Nervous Wreck (1946)

*** (out of 4)

Joe McDoakes (George O'Hanlon) is back and this time he is suffering from various fears. He's afraid of public speaking. Afraid of girls. Afraid to tell people no. His worst fear is whenever he sees his boss. Joe finally gets enough courage to go to a doctor to see if all these fears could be cured or if he's doomed for life. Once again it's the wonderful comic performance of O'Hanlon that makes this film worth viewing. The screenplay by Bare has all the perfect notes but it's O'Hanlon's deliver that really seals the deal and makes this series so funny. There's a terrific sequence at the start of the film where McDoakes shows us everything he's scared of and O'Hanlon does a wonderful job at playing these fear scenes and he manages to get one laugh after another. The same is true towards the end of the movie when he puts his new courage to the test. Clifton Young jumps on board here as Joe's biggest rival, a role he'd play in countless entries in the series.
