Movie Info

This version of the popular comedy based on Brandon Thomas's play features comedian Jack Benny as the lead. It is his first time playing a substantial role. The plot follows the exploits of Babbs, an Oxford student, who dresses up as a matronly aunt so he can chaperone two of his buddies, Charley and Jack who want to take two women to "tea." Complications ensue when Babbs is chased by two elderly gentlemen. Things get much worse when Charley's real aunt appears.
