Historically interesting and mildly amusing short
7 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gerald and Diana Hutton are a young married couple who become very angry at each other when, based on the flimsiest evidence, they think the other is stepping out on them. Instead of their getting a divorce, their lawyer has them sign an agreement that they will "live separately together." They are not to talk to each other and communicate by writing notes. This is a difficult charade to keep up and they soon reconcile through shared amusement over the antics of their maid. They not only laugh at her but at the situation they got themselves into. The film is important to film history for being directed by Alice Guy who is now generally recognized as being the first woman film director. The lead actors are very engaging and the film moves along at a good pace.
