Storyline

Joe McDoakes, scientists and doctors are searching for a cure for his allergy. Among other things,he uses a special spray in his bedroom and anti-sneeze powders on his food. He then finds out he is allergic to his wife's dandruff, and finally wraps her head and shoulders (not a plug for a popular shampoo)in a special breathing apparatus.

A solid Joe McDoakes
23 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this short our average Joe suffers from allergies; at first he's not sure of just what sets off the sneezing attacks. Even a picture of flowers can get him sneezing. There must have been millions of allergy sufferers who could readily sympathize with Joe and his travails and who would also find his drastic solution to contain the source of his allergy amusing which it was in a very silly way. When looking at the credits, I was struck by one of those interesting happenstance – Knox Manning was the narrator for this one. A few days ago I watched a 1943 compilation of silent shorts (Good Old Corn) with the narration by Knox Manning. To my recollection, I had never heard of Knox Manning before (he must been a prolific voice over actor) and then twice in one week.
