Storyline

A doctor, very much in love with his beautiful wife, comes to suspect that her visiting childhood friend Jack is more than just a friend. Jack's intentions are honorable, but everything he does tends to show his actions in a suspicious light, especially when burglars invade the house and Jack and the wife are caught together in their nightclothes.

Clever & Amusing
2 August 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This clever and amusing short comedy features engaging performances from Roscoe Arbuckle and Mabel Normand, with some good slapstick and entertaining story ideas. Al St. John also appears, in the kind of hyper-energy roughneck role that was typical of his earlier years.

Arbuckle and Normand play a doctor and his wife, and as usual they seem very natural in the role, showing the mutual affection and occasional peevishness that immediately tell us all about their marriage. They are joined by an old friend of the wife's (William Jefferson), and later they tangle with St. John's character.

The plot is purely lightweight, but it has some clever turns, it makes good use of the settings, and it provides Arbuckle and Normand with some good material, both in their interactions with each other and by themselves. The overall effect is a light but quite entertaining feature.
