Liked The Music As Much As The Humor
4 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Charley Chase plays "Melvin," a poor sap whose wife obsessively-jealous wife "Mame." The latter was played by a very pretty and sexy Katherine Grant, who makes me think this film should be the other way around with him jealous of her. Grant was a beauty pageant winner, by the way, but stopped making films two years after this.

Anyway, Mame tries to catch him in the act of cheating. However, Melvin is an upright guy who is not cheating nor even thinking about it. Even when some horny older woman is trying to get him to fool around in the backseat of a cab, he wants no part of it.

There are a few clever and funny sight gags in here, things I haven't seen in the Chaplin, Lloyd or Keaton films. Charley is a little different in his own way. One reviewer here said he looked like a cross between Dick Van Dyke and John Cleese, and I thought was pretty accurate. The last few minutes of this movie, as in many silent comedies, is hilarious.

One thing I really liked in this movie was the score. It was very snappy '20s music, mostly upbeat and a lot of fun to hear. Frankly, many of the scores from this era don't grab my attention....but this one did.
