This movie is one I hadn't heard of and it promised to be an exciting farce with Jack Benny playing a part in drag. It was not as good as I had expected. Benny plays the part but mostly from a straight angle and doesn't get into any of his campy routines he became famous for. Most of the gags are simply ones that would be expected in a movie where someone is impersonating an old lady. And they are tired and not at all funny.
Now I know why I hadn't heard about this movie.
I think Haunted Honeymoon is a tad dopey, but it has this movie beat hands down.
