In reenactments using actors to portray her husband, Marie Crawford demonstrates the many emotional states wives display to hold their husbands - unintentionally back - under different circumstances. They include: being emotionally upset every morning when the husband leaves for work (a ploy used by many newlywed wives) which may not help her husband's chances for the wanted promotion to office manager; being overzealously female in helping her husband set up and host a poker game in their home; and taking extreme measures to ensure that her husband won't pass his physical for the draft. But since she knows these ploys hold a husband back, Marie's real husband is probably happy and successful... or is he? Written by
Charming, if not totally funny, short from Pete Smith talks about three types of wives that could hold their husbands back from getting what they wanted. The first type of wife is the one who hates to see her husband leave in the morning and is constantly calling him up at work to check on him. The second wife over does everything to make sure her husband's poker game goes off without a problem. Then, finally, we get the type of wife who knows everything and plans on helping her husband avoid the draft. I will admit that none of the three stories made me laugh but at the same time all three were charming enough to make the film worth sitting through. Of the three stories I'd say that the second one was the best as the guy's are just wanting to smoke, talk dirty and play cards but the wife is constantly butting in. Smith's narration can certainly get a lot of credit for keeping the film moving since the laughs are lacking.
