When's Your Birthday? ★★½ 1937

Brown stars in this comedy about a prize-fighter who is working his way through astrology school with his fighting skills. The stars, in turn, tell him when to fight. Lame zaniness (what other kind is there?) meant as a vehicle for Brown, though Kennedy is funnier. The opening sequence, an animated cartoon showing the influence of the moon over the planets, was filmed in Technicolor. 77m/B VHS . Joe E. Brown, Marian Marsh, Edgar Kennedy; D: Harry Beaumont.
