Buck Benny Rides Again (1940)



Reviews and Comments

Buck Benny Rides Again, despite the name, is not a sequel -- it's the first and only time Jack Benny's Buck Benny character, from his radio show, ever made it into the movies. It's also an extremely funny, likeable film. The cast of Benny's radio show are all back -- Benny, Phil Harris, Andy Devine, and Dennis Day all play their charismatic selves. But even amongst such great comic talent, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, as usual, steals the show with his hilarious antics and delightful dancing.
