The Forgotten Man (1941)

The old jokes about the bride’s father being milked dry, ignored, and sidelined throughout the protracted wedding-preparation process began here, in this vintage Robert Benchley short. No one did, or has ever done, befuddled paternalism as well as Benchley. Find this flick, along with several other short films, on the Kino DVD Robert Benchley and the Knights of the Algonquin (2006).
