Description
Blame it on Shakespeare. In his original company of players, the men played the women's roles and "drag" became the norm. Since then, all kinds of stories have involved actors going undercover in drag for comic effect. This time out it's radio star Jack Benny's turn to play Charley's aunt. The purpose of the ruse is to have a proper chaperone for Charley (Richard Haydn) and his wingman Jack (James Ellison) when they woo a couple of cute coeds they have their eyes on. Unfortunately, its Charley's aunt who gets all the amorous attention.

Comments about this product:

I love this movie and finally was able to own it on dvd instead of always waiting for it to show on TCM (Which isn't bad at all). I really enjoyed the "Warner night at the movies" featuring the introduction by Leonard Maltin, the vintage cartoon "the tale of two kitties" featuring Abbot & Costello as the cats & one of the first screen debuts of tweety. I always enjoy the news-reels as it shows a pretty interesting aspect of American history. But the best thing I loved about this dvd was the 4 movie picture card stills you get with it, simply brilliant. So overall I give the overall movie, bonus features, added product, movie packaging, 10/10.

      Comments about this product:

      It was the 1930's version I was looking for, that I just saw last night on TCM (Dir: Al Christie
      Cast: Charles Ruggles , June Collyer , Hugh Williams. BW-86 mins, CC,). So not sure how much it was THOSE actors instead of these, but I'd never seen it, and I laughed and laughed and laughed until I cried, even was giggling with tears in my eyes remembering the hillarious scenes as I was falling asleep. Laughter is a great thing! That version at least was THE funniest movie I think I've ever seen in my life. Play it again! Play it again on wonderful TCM. (Since that version is not for sale). Play this version, too, I'd love to see it, okay? TCM you are the BEST!!
