Available on iTunes
Comedian Jack Benny and Ann Sheridan star with Academy Award winner Hattie McDaniel (Gone with the Wind) in a hilarious screen adaptation of the hit Broadway play George Washington Slept Here. When inveterate antique collector Connie Fuller (Sheridan) finds a house in upstate New York in which U.S. President George Washington once spent a night, she sees a gem in need of a little polish. But her husband, urbanite Bill Fuller (Benny), finds only suffering when the couple leaves his beloved city for what he considers a ramshackle bungalow in the wilderness. Now, will their marriage survive the never-ending surprises of home ownership?
