Jack Benny: as himself. About 15 or so minutes in, when Christopher (Kit) Madden (Claudette Colbert) is in the train station, Jack approaches her and asks her if she is Christoper Madden and when she says yes, he asks her to autograph the book she is holding (which she wrote) and asks her to make it out to Jack Benny. He first approaches with is back to the camera, so it's impossible to see who he is, but when he speaks, his voice is immediately recognizable. He then self-identifies to verify the viewer's suspicions, but not until she signs the book and moves on does he turn around and face the camera for the final verification. See more »

Have you heard of some fellas, who first came over to this country? You know what they found? They found a howling wilderness, with summers to hot, and winters freezing. Did they have insurance for their old age, for their crops, for their homes? They did not. They looked at the land and the forest and the rivers they looked at their wives, their kids, and their houses. Then they looked up at the sky and said thanks God, we'll take it from here. They were men!

Many in the Hollywood elite belittled John Wayne. To get back at him for his Americanist views, liberals panned his movies and acting ability. If you have seen "The Quiet Man" or "The Searchers" or "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" or "The Sands of Iwo Jima" amongst many others, you already know that John Wayne could indeed act.
Watch "Without Reservations." My family loves John Wayne but who would have thought he could do comedy? And then do it well?
"Without Reservations" is a funny, amusing, delightful movie which is one of my wife's favorite (a New York City liberal by the way). Get a big bowl of popcorn. Sit back with your family and enjoy a lighthearted adventure. Cobert and Don Dafore are perfectly cast.
