After a homely married couple separately undergo plastic surgery, they unwittingly plan an extramarital affair with each other.
This was directed by Leo McCarey, who really did not come into his own until the 1940s, making films along the same lines as Frank Capra. I had no idea he was involved in the silent comedy business.
Charley Chase (18931940) was an American comedian, actor, screenwriter and film director, best known for his work in Hal Roach short film comedies. He was the older brother of comedian/director James Parrott. Somehow I had never heard of Charley Chase before... he just does not get listed with Lloyd, Keaton, Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy... but maybe he should be. This concept was revolutionary and there is even a gigolo!
