Bring on the Girls! (1934)

By George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind

In the heady days of the New Deal, the government was dispensing a check to thousands of worthy organizations around the country. Two unscrupulous bankers decide to bilk Washington, DC by starting a phony railroad, farm, and bank securities system—all based out of their New York apartment. When they send the government photographs of their attractive secretaries, the money starts rolling in. This comedy, which starred Jack Benny in his only dramatic stage appearance, predates the hilarious shenanigans of The Producers.
