Great comedy
21 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We saw it the other day on the big screen, with theater organ accompaniment.

You all know the plot and the outcome, from the other reviews. Chase is great in this one. In one big scene, he's both the aggrieved husband and the "other guy" trying to cut in on Mrs Moose. The two of him duke it out in a hallway behind a door. He's in a house-robe, and the other he's in a suit, with a hat. (Ever notice how many men wore hats in those days?).

You might have missed the line near the end, where the dog recognizes Mr Moose when he puts the fake teeth back in - and the screen caption reads "Ah! His master's teeth".

One of the most well-known advertising line was RCA Victrola's "His Master's Voice".
