After ten years of marriage Florence feels the romance has left her marriage and she talks Edgar into putting on his old navy uniform and getting a ladder so he can serenade her outside her bedroom window. When a gallant Edgar tries to do a good deed by coming to the aid of a distressed woman, he is spotted by his freeloading in-law, who immediately jump to the wrong conclusion.

Funny!
11 May 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This short subject, one of a long series of Kennedy's 'Everyman' series at RKO, somehow manages to be simultaneously typical of the series, amazingly funny, and say something real about the human condition.

Edgar and wife -- played by his usual spouse in this series, Florence Lake -- have witnessed the life slowly bubble out of their marriage, and realize it. So Edgar puts on his old sailor suit from twenty years before and courts his wife -- a bit of roleplaying to put the zest back into their marriage -- SEX under the increasing stricture of the newly-enforced Production Code.

The cast and crew have a lot of fun hiding in plain sight. And the final gag is a magnificent howler. If the opportunity arises to see this, don't miss it.
