A bit better than average
1 July 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

George O'Hanlon is back for another Joe McDoakes short. And, as in some of the films, his wife is played by Phyllis Coates--Lois Lane from the TV "Adventures of Superman"--who appears here uncredited.

After Joe and his wife have a scrap, Joe goes into the basement and looks through his old mementos from his bachelor days. As he does so, he reminisces about these good 'ol days and you see his relationship with the woman who would later become Mrs. McDoakes. What follows is insane--often quite funny but occasionally the laughs come so fast you almost wish they'd slowed the thing down a bit. Either way, it is funny and better than the average McDoakes film. I'd say more about what exactly happens, but you just have to see it to believe it!
