Storyline

Jamison has a very jealous wife. Mrs. Jamison has a very gossipy friend. When the friend spots Jamison on the street talking to an attractive young woman, she reports back to Mrs. Jamison that her husband is obviously having an affair. Mrs. Jamison storms out, and a few minutes later a guest arrives for a visit -- a Professor Brown. Jamison doesn't realize the professor is a woman, and Mrs. Jamison, who has returned, doesn't realize the woman is Professor Brown. She presumes she has caught her husband with his mistress. A dancing butler, a game-playing dog, and a very accommodating burglar complicate the situation. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Did You Know?

Crazy Credits

Except for Charley Chase, whose name appears above the title, there is no cast list. Actors are introduced by intertitle cards just before they appear on the screen. The IMDb cast list therefore uses this "order of appearance" sequence. See more »

User Reviews

Three Chase
11 March 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

What Price Goofy (1925)

** (out of 4)

Boring Charley Chase film has him bringing a dog home, which makes his wife think he's having an affair. There really isn't a single laugh here, although the various dog tricks are very cute and keep things moving nicely.

Uneasy Three, The (1925)

*** (out of 4)

Comic spoof of Lon Chaney's The Unholy Three has Charley Chase playing the leader of a gang who plans on stealing some priceless jewels. There are plenty of good laughs scattered throughout this short but most of them come from a kid who accidentally gets kidnapped in all the confusion.

Bad Boy (1925)

** (out of 4)

A man (Charley Chase) will do whatever it takes to please his parents even though they disagree about everything. The early scenes with Chase trying to do construction work are funny but things fizzle out a bit afterwards.
