A fairly good comedy short from 1925, made more interesting by the talent involved: future Laurel & Hardy supporting actor Jimmy Finlayson stars; Stan Laurel directs and co-writes; James Parrott, brother of Charley Chase and future L&H director co-writes; L&H cinematographer Art Lloyd is behind the camera and future KING KONG star Fay Wray has a small role.
Fin is very good as a faithful husband, whose wife is looking for proof that more than his eyes have been roving. She hires a private detective to provide it. It consists of three scenes and the one in which Fin is trying to pick out a new hat is interesting. He was always good at registering comic dislike.
