The first Eagle-Lion film stars Kenny Delmar as Senator Beauregard Claghorn, his "Allen's Alley" resident-character heard on Fred Allen's radio program. Claghorn was a blustery, one-man-Chamber-of-Commerce for all things Southern, who had no tolerence for anything north of the Mason-Dixon line, although he made allowances for South Philly. The character inspired the creation of one of the most popular of the Warners' cartoon characters, Foghorn Leghorn, who re-worked most of the originals material and style. The title of this movie is a stock line- "it's a joke, son"---he would feed a befuddled Fred Allen each week. In the film, Claghorn gets into some financial difficulties and is forced by a machine-political gang to enter a race for state senator against his wife (Una Merkel) who appears to have a good chance to beat the political hack backed by the machine. Claghorn is in to siphon votes and ensure his wife's opponent will win and is expected to run a campaign that will defeat ... Written by

Kenny Delmar stars as Senator Beauregard Claghorn, a bombastic Southerner who sounds an awful lot like Foghorn Leghorn. As another reviewer pointed out, Claghorn had some funny lines in the film, such as his desire to rename North Carolina or change the United States to "The South" or complaining because he was served BOSTON baked beans!
As for the rest of the film, it's a likable little comedy with modest pretenses. The plot involves Claghorn initially announcing his retirement. As a result, Mrs. Claghorn decides to run as well as another candidate. Beauregard wants this other candidate to win, but eventually realizes the guy is a jerk. So, now Beauregard throws his hat into the ring as well. But, mobsters working for this other candidate decide to use a bit of chicanery themselves and kidnap Beauregard to prevent him from running! Will our hero escape? And who will win this now hotly contested election? Overall, it's a decent little time-passer. It has a few laughs here and there and is a pleasant little film. Nothing great, but certainly worth a look.
