A very large woman, wearing a shift, stands beside a bed and tries to put on a corset. After failing to get it around her, she calls her husband in. He stands behind her holding the corset and reaches around her so she can grasp and begin to tie it in front. He tightens the laces in back. She's done, and he's done in, collapsing onto the bed as she laughs and laughs at him. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Mildly Entertaining 'Blue' Feature
9 January 2006 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This short, sardonically titled movie is mildly entertaining, and on repeat viewings it is also less off-putting and a little more amusing than it seems at first. It is also of some significance as one of a good number of features of the era that deliberately resorted to risqué material, contrary to the perceptions of those who have little acquaintance with the earliest years of cinema.

The whole story is about a very bulky woman's struggles to put on her corset. The gag ideas are of course the predictable ones, and they are at best only slightly amusing in themselves. The woman's husband loyally assists her in these efforts, and this adds a somewhat different tone.

It may be less noticeable than the overt pokes at the woman's size, but the couple share an obvious closeness with one another, despite the offbeat challenge they are facing. Whether this was intentional or not, it gives the movie an additional dimension. The main point is not to ridicule the woman for her weight, but to show a mildly entertaining domestic situation that the couple faces together.
