Description: Peppone, hardened mayor in Brescello, the tiny village on the Po river, aspires to become senator.

Trust it or not, don Camillo supports Peppone to pass the examination (with the forecast of moving to Rome) prompting him the solution of geometry's problem. As implicit reward, Peppone writes a composition about "A boy I'll never forget": obviously don Camillo, when Peppone was a resistant in WWII, and don Camillo the young military chaplain. Getting the diploma was the first step. The election campaign just started and the two large parties - Christian-democratic and Communist, forgetful of respective favors, settle down an electoral "war of the words", mean tricks (culminating with the popular horny Peppone/Lucifer) and simple propaganda.

How to Sub-Let Reviews:

While Bob's wife is at church, Bob is left to present his apartment to potential fresh tenants. There really is much here. What could have been a sight gag fest turns out to be boring. Bumbling Bob could have destroyed the apartment while showing it. Unfortunately, the several sight gags there are do not illicit much laughter. Actually Benchley really wasn't much of a physical comedian, but his facial expressions should be priceless. He tries, but there just isn't enough nice material for him to react to. The comedy clocks in at about 8 minutes, but seems much longer; the pacing is very slow. I guess Benchley just ran out of concepts for this short. He's done better with another films.


How to Sub-let (1939) ** (out of 4) Fair short has Joseph Doakes (Robert Benchley) being left home alone when a couple folks present up to sub-let his apartment. With the wife gone terrible Doakes doesn't have anyone to fall back on so he gotta test and respond all the questions, which of course he can't do. I love Turner Classic Films and I really love the fact that they are constantly showing different shorts but over time I've come to realize that Benchley is very hit and miss with me. I think some of his movies have been downright horrid with others fairly good. This one here isn't a finished success but there are a couple large laughs that create the movie worth viewing including the final joke. Other very nice sequence has the girl asking Benchley how to work the stove so he goes to present her only he's operating the fridge instead. Benchley's humor is as dry as ever but it works to a certain mission here. This movie certainly isn't anything ground breaking but it's pleasant enough if you have 9-minutes to kill.
