Charley's Aunt (1941)
Based on the play by Brandon Thomas, this hilarious farce stars Jack Benny as an Oxford undergrad who agrees to help his friends circumnavigate a strict university dating rule by acting as their chaperone. There's just one catch: He'll have to pose as a woman to do so. Now, Benny learns just how much of a drag cross-dressing can be. James Ellison, Richard Haydn, Arleen Whelan co-star.
