Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In a rare starring role, character comedian Edward Everett Horton is top-billed in Your Uncle Dudley. Horton is a civic-minded patsy who puts his own interests on the back burner so that he can help out his neighbors. In the true spirit of "No good deed goes unpunished," all Horton has to show for his efforts is a wallful of paper citations and a mountain of debts. Realizing that he has been taken advantage of by the less honest townsfolk, Horton does a "worm turns" scene, though he continues to extend generosity for the truly deserving. Your Uncle Dudley was based on a stage play by Howard Lindsay and Bertrand Robinson.
