I LOVED THIS MOVIE!!!
17 October 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I was giggling and laughing throughout this entire film. Anyone who doesn't see it is missing a comedy classic!

Marie Prevost (Mabel) plays an adorable and pert flapper beauty who marries and divorces Harrison Ford The First (Garry), an architect, in Paris in short order. She sees him buying a piece of intimate apparel and thinks it is for another woman. Only after she divorces her husband does she open the box and see it is embroidered with "To Mabel from Garry."

So back to Garry she goes trying to make it up with him, but Garry has his pride you see and "won't let the same woman divorce me twice!" Garry tries proposing to another girl who is crazy about him, in an attempt to throw Mabel off track, but it does quite the opposite. We know all along Garry is fighting a losing battle and is still crazy about Mabel, but it is fun to watch the games that are played until differences are resolved. The "doohicky" (intimate apparel) becomes the focus of the plot. Garry has to get it back before Mabel shows it to Phyllis, the other woman Garry has proposed to.

They made a variant of this film in the 1940's but it has nowhere near the humor and charm of the original silent version.

Fun, funny film. Don't miss it!
