No double for the Phil Harris short!!
12 February 2014 | by (Bigtown, Montana USA) – See all my reviews

Beware--only if you are watching the short titled "Double or Nothing" made in 1936 are you watching radio star Phil Harris, shortly before he launched his long career as Jack Benny's bandleader. TCM recently aired another 1939/1940 short with the same name and mistakenly labeled it as this short. The latter short starred the forgotten Lee Dixon and a boring bevy of bad star imitators. (I notice that IMDb continues this confusion on its "Enter Review" comments header.) I doubt the 1939 short was nominated for an Oscar; more like Oscar Mayer filler! Phil Harris was a one-of-a-kind curly-haired entertainer who had the South in his Mouth and was a dynamo of fun. I hope to see him in the 1936 short instead of the 1939 ersatz. C'mon TCM, read your reel covers!
