The Robert Benchley Miniatures Collection

Category: Comedy
Duration: 5 hours
Media: DVD
Catalog Number: 92264
Price: $35.99


From the pages of Vanity Fair and The New Yorker to a seat among the wits at the Algonquin Round Table to movie screens nationwide, Robert Benchley cut quite the funny figure…and never more so than in the short subject series the humorist made at MGM from 1935 to 1944. Gathered here, in a complete (and completely uproarious)' 3-Disc Collection, are 30 Theatrical Shorts. The writer adopted a common-man persona to investigate and comment on the challenges of daily living and scored the first time out: his debut short "How to Sleep" won an Academy Award. Whether trying to figure income taxes, enjoy a movie, train a dog, or tackling other daunting situations, the beloved comic master's foibles have always delighted and influenced the generations of funny men and women who followed.
