Foghorn Leghorn personified

"The character Kenny Delmar plays in this movie--Senator Clanghorn--was one he initially created for radio audiences. More notably, it's the character on which Warner Brothers (and Mel Blanc) later based the cartoon rooster Foghorn Leghorn. Always a Foghorn fan, I was interested in the origin of the character, and bought a VHS version of the movie some years ago. It sports an engaging (if contrived) plot, designed as a vehicle for allowing Delmar to bring his blustery, conniving character to the screen."
As I recall, I say, as I recall

"Funny to watch a northerner playing a southern gentleman and a truly original character. Sorry to find out what Warner Bros did to him after they developed Foghorn Leghorn cartoon character. Obviously Kenny Delmar was no, I say, no Groucho Marx to put those carpetbaggers in their place. His character will live on with the South even though he was no southern planter, that is."

"Kenny Delmar's voice from the Fred Allen show comes alive on the screen. If you're over 60 you may enjoy the nostalgic re-connection with a "character" from the history of radio comedy shows. If not over 60, and below 30 maybe it'll do you good to step out of the electronic "cell" you're surrounded by and see what the old days were like.
THey weren't perfect, all of who are from 60-70 and above know that. But they were fun, no political correctness was known then, perhaps that's too bad but the foibles of both halves are poked fun at in a way that would do the Klan a lot of good to take to heart."
