Description
Manhattanites Bill and Connie Fuller are trying to make a go of life in their dilapidated, recently purchased country home. The place has a lot of history. George Washington slept there. Or was it Benedict Arnold?

Before Tom Hanks and Shelley Long fell into The Money Pit, even before Cary Grant and Myrna Loy unrolled a blueprint for hilarity in Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, Jack Benny and Ann Sheridan turned a fixer-upper home into a comedy funhouse in George Washington Slept Here, based on the play by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. Percy Kilbride, the screen’s future Pa Kettle, here reprises his stage role of the drawling, unflappable handyman Mr. Kimber.

      Comments about this product:

      I used to watch Jack Benny on television. Well!

      I found this movie delightful. Even temper Jack Benny was absolutely marvelous when he fell thorough a floor and into the well during his introduction to Ann Sheridan's purchase of this house. I would have blown my top off and I am a quiet person.

      So, let the hilarity begin. Every situation seems to gets worse; no road, no water, no train. Percy Kilbridge demanding more supplies. Then his wife's nightmare nephew and uncle show up.

      The decrepit property is now house beautiful without water. The mortgagee demands foreclosure. They find a letter inside a boot while everyone has imbibed Percy's apple cider.

      I will let you guess the rest.

      Jack Benny was his best in this movie. I could not have taken it without blowing up or running for cover. This is a good mood comedy movie.

        I love the 'oldies', Hollywood does these period pieces (any movie made in the 30's-40's, Benny is a favorite of mine. Nice to be able to watch a movie with youngsters and not have to have 'clicker' at the ready.Would have loved a winter scene or two in this movie. No one did those like Hollywood did !

          What had me about this movie was that it was 1942 and there was no mention of the war until Jack Benny read the letter from George Washington.

            This is one of those funny movies from the 40's that you can enjoy when you just want to be entertained. I have watched it many times on TCM, so I was happy to get it on DVD! Thank you.

              Delightful and charming is how I would describe this movie...besides fun. I am so glad it is finally available in DVD plus I got it at a price I could afford (3 for $33). Thanks TCM!

                  This is a great classic comedy that is a fun ride through all the troubles a family expeiences through moving from the city to the country. I love the house after it is remodeled. This movie is light-hearted and I would highly recommend it.

                      In the same vein as "Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House" and, much later, "The Money Pit." If viewer can get around Ann Sheridan being married to Jack Benny, it can be a lot of fun.

                        I have been waiting for TCM to offer this movie on DVD and was so thrilled to finally see it available. This is a too funny "money-pit" film starring the great Jack Benny. You will love it.
