Movie Info

What Happened to Jones takes approximately 70 minutes' screen time to tell in this frothy comedy. On the night before his wedding, Tom Jones (Reginald Denny) attends a poker game with his corpulent pal Ebeneezer Goodly (Otis Harlan). When the cops raid the game, Tom and Eb sneak into a ladies' Turkish bath, making their escape in female drag. Upon arriving in Eb's home, Tom is forced by circumstance to pose as Eb's brother, a bishop. It turns out that the bishop is slated to officiate over the wedding of Tom and his sweetheart Lucille (Marian Nixon), putting our hero in the pickle of having to be in two places at once when he's not anywhere at all! With films like What Happened to Jones to his credit, it's no wonder that Reginald Denny was Universal's number one comedy star. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
