Movie Info

Richard Clarke (Jack Benny) is a good-natured lawyer who lacks the hard-boiled legal instincts to be financially successful. When the object of his affections, Janie Brown (Priscilla Lane), decides to marry a wealthy suitor, Richard resolves to relocate his legal practice to New York City and make an attempt to win Janie's heart. Now, with the help of litigious billionaire Frederick Leggitt (Edmund Gwenn), Clarke makes the transformation from nice-guy attorney to ruthless legal shark.

Audience Reviews for The Meanest Man in the World

  • Aug 29, 2015
    Take the Jack Benny show, cut out all the fat, and waddaya got? Benny and Rochester, sparring against and for each other, which brings us to this quick little gem about a cheap but warmhearted lawyer (its a fantasy) acting mean and lowdown cause people seem to like lawyers that way. Unfortunately, the racial attitudes of those days very nearly overcook this duck, but the chemistry of the two leads manages to survive even that. Worth looking for.
