An amusing farce
18 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this silent farce, Marie Prevost as Marie and Harrison Ford as Bob are newly weds honeymooning in Paris. After Bob's friend George visits, Marie and Bob start arguing about small matters and Marie leaves and visits her friend Hector (played by the wonderfully mildly prissy Franklin Pangborn) who owns a fashion house in Paris. To test Bob's affection for her and at Hector's encouragement, Marie decides to don a blonde wig and a fake beauty mark. When Bob and George visit the fashion house they both are immediately smitten by the blonde Marie. As Bob and George are loitering outside her door, Hector tells Marie via a title card "That pair of one cent stamps must be sticking around trying to play post office." Bob of course does not recognize the blonde as his wife and George tells Marie that Bob is "...just a human lemon hanging around for some one to give him a squeeze." I love the title cards in silent comedies. The boys ask Marie out and she invites both of them for dinner at her suite at the Ritiz (a suite adjoining Bob and hers). We're soon informed that "dinner is ready from soup to nuts - but the nuts hadn't arrived yet." Soon the nuts and Hector arrive and there is much scurrying about. Even as absurd as it is, I'm a fan of farce and this one is enjoyable. Particularly noteworthy is Franklin Pangborn, his comedic time and mannerisms add greatly to the fun of this film. Also interesting is the glimpse we get of the fashions and customs of the very wealthy. While awaiting for Marie to return, Bob dresses for lunch, then dresses for tea and then dresses for dinner. The wealthy had both a lot of clothes and a lot of time on their hands.
