Quick Overview

6 classic shorts starring actor and comedian Jack Benny.

YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD (1950)


Comedian Jack Benny has his butler, Rochester, call several of his celebrity friends over to the house. Benny introduces them to a Catholic priest, who speaks to them about doing a film for a group called the Christophers. The Christophers are an organization that wants to use different mediums such radio, TV, and film to inspire young people to change the world for the better by pursuing careers in public service like teaching and government work. The priest gives the celebrities a history lesson about the founding of the U.S. and God's role in it, and he asks for their help.

 


SHOW-BUSINESS AT WAR (1943)


A multi-studio effort to show the newsreel audience the progress of the Hollywood war effort.

 


HOLLYWOOD GOES TO TOWN (1938)


This short shows how Hollywood gets ready for the world premiere of an "important" movie. The film celebrated here is Marie Antoinette (1938), which had its premiere at the Carthay Circle Theatre. We see the street leading to the theatre transformed to suggest a garden that might be seen in a French palace. This includes the placement of trees and other foliage, as well as large statues along the route. Grandstands are set up so fans can see their favorite stars as they arrive for the premiere. Finally, the proverbial "galaxy of stars" arrives in their limousines. Fanny Brice and Pete Smith make remarks at the microphone set up on the carpet outside the theatre.

 


TAXI TANGLE (1931)


In a traffic jam, Jack Benny tries to pick up Helen Hunt in the adjacent cab. Before the traffic moves, they've been briefly married!

 


A BROADWAY ROMEO (1931)


Jack Benny, his finances at a low ebb, watches a newsstand for a friend and picks up a young lady customer, equally broke.

 


THE SONG WRITERS' REVUE (1930)


This short showcases composers and lyricists of songs that are now considered standards of American popular music. For the complete list of songs performed, check the soundtrack listing. For several of these song writers, this is their only known appearance in a theatrically released film.
