Trivia

According to some print sources the police officer who appears briefly at the end of this short is played by William Frawley. Although the actor in this scene admittedly resembles Frawley he appears to be 55 to 60 years old, as Frawley was when he played Fred Mertz TV's I Love Lucy in the 1950s. In 1925 when this short was made, Frawley was in his mid-30s and touring the country in vaudeville with his wife. See more »

It has a few really nice gags...
10 October 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Jimmy Jump (Charley Chase) comes home and announces that his wife can now take it easy--he's gotten a raise and they can hire a maid. However, when the maid arrives, they don't seem very comfortable with all this service. Later, after dinner, the maid leaves--and rushes right back inside because there's a robber in the front yard. How he deals with it is pretty clever.

Later, he drives the maid home. Apparently the wife is a bit suspicious and Jimmy tries to stop her to talk with her when a cop arrives. What happens next, once again, is pretty cute.

This short has three especially good gags. As many comedies only have one or two, this is well worth your time. I could say more, but it would spoil the fun. See this one.
