Storyline

Ma and Pa Slocum sell up their thriving packed-lunch business (based on Ma's home cooking, Pa's packaging design, and pretty daughter Helen's salesmanship), and move 'uptown' to live the life of the idle rich on the proceeds. But Ma starts worrying about her figure, the neighbour's nephew has his roving eye on Helen, and her construction-worker fiancé feels that the family are getting too 'swell' for his touch; events culminate in a family quarrel that sends the men out to seek solace at a raunchy club, while the women resort to the Turkish Baths. But the night isn't over yet... Written by Igenlode Wordsmith

A Mackailll comedy as a surprise
27 June 2007 | by (Kings Park NY) – See all my reviews

Saw this last month at the UCLA film Library along with 3 others. It shows Dorothy in a comic plot which is very different her usual milieu. She pulls it of with the aid of very amusing story. James Finlayson with his movie affectation, his bushy handlebar mustache, was a scream. The scrambling around in and around the ladies bath, by Dorothy, Jimmy and her mother was very inventive. I gave this an 8. Why this library does not release this and their other Mackaill flicks to TCM is very annoying. There has to be many that UCLA has that, some in nitrate form which can be very delightful to the army of Mackaill fans nationwide.

Very inventive for its time,not the usual unfunny Chaplin stuff, and way better than the Arbuckle boring attempts at humor.
