So This Is Harris! is a 1933 American Pre-Code short comedy film directed by Mark Sandrich. It won an Academy Award in 1934 for Best Short Subject (Comedy).[1][2] The Academy Film Archive preserved So This Is Harris! in 2012.[3]


The film is a series of comical musical numbers and skits following Phil Harris around, starting with him performing at the Cocoanut Grove nightclub, which is listened to by Dorothy on the radio whose homebrewing husband Walter hates Harris. The action then moves to the country club where Walter unknowingly encounters Harris while being aggravated by his music. Walter then pretends to be Phil to meet a woman while Harris "entertains" her friend, Dorothy.
