Not exactly subtle but fun.
7 July 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of Charley Chase's later shorts that he made for Columbia Pictures. In general, I've noticed that these later films are pretty good BUT also aren't quite as good as his best film that were made with Hal Roach.

When this one begins, a husband is so preoccupied by his work that he barely notices his pretty wife. However, he realizes his mistake and asks an author (Chase) to help him. He wants Chase to come to his home and make a play for the wife--then, the husband can pretend he's jealous and impress his wife that he cares. The problem is that the wife catches wind of their plan and decides to reciprocate when Charley makes passes at her! However, the butler isn't in on any of this and is determined NOT to let this happy home be ruined by an outsider--and he's constantly watching and threatening Charley.

Generally this is a good film. However, sometimes the film could have been better had the tone been a bit more subtle. Still, this is one that will hold your interest and probably will make you smile.
