Alias the Deacon is a 1940 American comedy film directed by Christy Cabanne and written by Nat Perrin and Charles Grayson. It is based on the 1925 play The Deacon by John B. Hymer and LeRoy Clemens.

The film was released on May 17, 1940 by Universal Pictures.[1][2][3]



In a contemporary review for The New York Times, critic Bosley Crowther called the film "an hour of pleasing sport" and wrote: "Let's be grateful for small favors these days and speak a frankly encouraging word for 'Alias the Deacon,' an undistinguished but thoroughly genial little farce-comedy ... In fact, this corner would be glad to recommend it for nothing more than the fun of hearing (and seeing) Mr. Burns inquire sweetly of an unsuspicious schemer out to fleece him, 'Draw poker—what's that?'"[4]
