Trivia

The first of four two-reelers teaming Hugh Herbert and Dudley Dickerson together with a "scare" theme. The others being Nervous Shakedown (1947). Tall, Dark, and Gruesome (1948), and One Shivery Night (1950). According to many trade reviews, these four shorts were more well-received than all of Herbert's Columbia output, put together.

One of the funnier non-Stooge Columbia shorts
13 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many experts consider the best of Hugh Herbert's 23 Columbia shorts to be the "scare" comedies he did with African-American comedian Dudley Dickerson; this is one of the funniest of the lot. Hugh shows a bit more energy than usual, but the real stars are the supporting players. Dickerson provides plenty of good "frightened reaction" comedy, and also provides a hilarious monologue; Christine McIntyre shows a nice, broad range in her acting, and even winding up on the business end of a loaded shaving brush in one scene; but the real star is Dick Curtis and his over-the-top performance as Christine's jealous husband. Stooge fans take note: The ending was later used by director Ed Bernds for the Three Stooges short DOPEY DICKS.
