Indentify this movie


Recommended Posts

Several years ago TCM aired a movie short introduced by Robert Osborne, who said it was one of the best shorts ever made. The movie was a comedy and ran for a little less than an hour and was made in the early 40's during WWII. The central character is a business tycoon whose factory is in the city but he lives in a mansion in the suburbs.


Gasoline has been rationed and he is no longer able get enough ration books to drive back and forth to his business everyday. He invites a number of his workers to move into his home. They apply for ration books also, which he uses to get enough gasoline for his daily trip to work. The wife comes home and finds the house full of strangers. Pandemonium breaks out as the guests get confused about who is in which room.


There was an episode of Frasier about a cabin in the woods which was based on a similar plot. This was an hilarious short movie that I would love to see again, but cannot remember the name.
