Framing of the Shrew, The (1929)

*** (out of 4)

Another black cast comedy. This one has a husband (Edward Thompson) starting divorce proceedings on his wife (Evelyn Preer) in hopes that she'll change her ways. Her ways that he wants changing is that he doesn't want to do chores any more. There are plenty of laughs throughout this short including a hilarious scene where the husband sets up a date so that his wife will catch him. Spencer Williams co-stars as the lawyer.

If you're interested in early race films then you'll certainly want to check this one out.
