This is a rare case of a short that was so highly regarded by the makers that it was remade under another title several years later. Audiences must have loved it.
I can't say that much for it. A woman (UNA MERKEL), in a modern looking kitchen with all sorts of gadgets, is a complete klutz until, by magic, a chef appears to help her stuff a duck before her husband (FRANKLIN PANGBORN) comes home from work with some company. Otherwise, the poor woman would have nothing to show for her efforts but a mess on the kitchen floor which he clears up immediately. He also shows her how to make baked apples.
The real source of amusement is the script, narrated in witty fashion by Pete Smith and making a lot of funny observations.
It's funny, not hilarious, and for anyone interested in gourmet cooking it might be even more worth watching.
