"I'm a Civilian Here Myself"

To the following inquiry:
Bob Benchley did a short film for the Marines at the end of WWII as a mustering-out lesson. I would like very much to get a VHS copy. Can the society do this for me? Now approaching 81 and this is one item I would like to achieve very soon.

The Robert Benchley Society responded:
The film you're thinking of is "I'm a Civilian Here Myself" which Benchley made in 1945 for the U.S. Navy. It was released some years ago on VHS by Video Yesteryear. It probably is out-of-print, and the company may be out of business, but here is some contact information:
