Why Do They All Take The Night Boat To Albany?
7 October 2002 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Sharp little programmer that answers the question posed by Al Jolson. Everyone in this cast turns in a top-notch comedic performance, even Warren Hymer as the dim-witted life guard and Berton Churchill as Zasu Pitts' boss. The jokes are punctuated by enough well-acted moments of tenderness to make the whole thing believable
