An Evening Alone Reviews:

This is other powerful entry in the everytime dependable 'Joe Doakes' series of shorts that Benchley wrote and starred in for MGM and occasionally Paramount in the 1930s and 1940s. They took two forms: in the first, Benchley would lecture confusedly on some topics that his hero would seem to know nothing about, like the Oscar-winning HOW TO SLEEP. In the second, he would enjoy Joe Doakes, who would go about creating havoc in his ordinary way. This is an episode of the second; the Missus has gone out, leaving him alone to do catch up on those tasks he has place off, like destroying the cuckoo clock and filling the house with smoke. As usual, Benchley is weak key, befuddled and amusing.


Evening Alone, An (1938) ** 1/2 (out of 4) Better than expected short from Robert Benchley has him testing Joe Doakes, a husband who gets left home alone when his wife decides to go out with a girlfriend. This short is a warning to wives about what should happen if you leave your husband alone. Joe begins off wanting to learn about some household stuff and begins off with the cuckoo clocks, which he ends up breaking. He then decides to begin a tiny fire, which grows out of control and even smoking his favourite pipe doesn't work out. AN EVENING ALONE details the kind of humor fanatics have come to expect from Benchley but I've everytime been very hit and miss on his work. I thought this movie was certainly much better than most because there are some very funny gags that receive carried out to a nice effect. One happens when Benchley bites into an orange and gets juice all over himself. He gotta then search a zone to wipe his mouth. Other funny gag has him reading a horror storyline and then getting afraid to close a window. Both of these gags receive a couple large laughs and they alone create this movie worth sitting through.
