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!

Pretty Innocuous Film Makes for Fair Entertainment
Claudette Colbert and John Wayne star in this lightweight comedy about an authoress who may not know enough about men to write about them. Her first book is a smash hit, but John Wayne scrutinizes it a bit, when he meets Claudette, not knowing she wrote it. He and his pal Don DeFore make a nice pair of guys to hang out with, and he and Claudette have good chemistry and repartee, but somehow the last 30 minutes goes off course and keeps this from being a very fulfilling movie experience. They're all good company and they have quite a few madcap escapades together, but things just don't fall into place as they should and the film tends to wander and go on too long. But if you get a chance to see Without Reservations, it's enjoyable and undemanding entertainment for almost two hours.
