Benny makes an entirely believable putz suddenly thrown into an unbelievable fantasy in which he has to save the world. Horn sort of failed at the Box Office, and I am not entirely certain why. It's a bit irreverent, and it's not based on any recognizable Christian story. Nonetheless, it is recognizably Christian without being too exclusive. When Benny blows his horn at midnight, the earth will be destroyed and the inhabitants will face the last judgement. After years of death and destruction during WWII, and the war with Japan continuing, having Jack Benny attempting to annihilate the Earth might not have seemed very funny to the contemporary audience. In 1945, Jack Benny starred in his last major motion picture, The Horn Blows at Midnight, as a band member who dreams he's an angel sent to destroy the Earth.
