Storyline

Made during the post-war period of pressing apartment shortages, Joe McDoakes senses an attempt to force him out when the landlord puts an elevator shaft in the middle of his living room. After eviction, he is swamped with offers ranging from rooms in condemned tenements to black-market bungalows. He finally signs an expensive (relatively speaking) $500 lease for his old apartment.

Greedy landlord!!!

A hilarious comedy short involving a landlord scheming to evict his tenants and rent his apartments for more money. How would you like to lose a one hundred dollar bet on purpose to a landlord so you can get a vacant apartment only to find out the building is going to be knocked down the next day. This short is a gem!!!
