Charleys Aunt 1941 Jack Benny Comedy Romance
Stars: Jack Benny, Kay Francis, James Ellison
Charleys Aunt story line. Charley Wyckham and Jack Chesney pressure fellow student Fancourt Babberly to pose as Charley’s Brazilian Aunt Donna Lucia. Their purpose is to have a chaperone for their amorous visits with Amy and Kitty, niece and ward of crusty Stephen Spettigue. Complications begin when Fancourt, in drag, becomes the love object of old Spettigue and Sir Francis Chesney.
Benny’s humor, perhaps a bit subdued for today’s audiences, nevertheless shines in “Charley’s Aunt“. It doesn’t hurt that he’s in drag for a good part of the movie. A man in a dress can always be counted on for a few laughs!
