a strange short musical comedy
18 January 2008 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

In this weird all-black cast short, a man dances to a jazz record with his maid, until his wife and daughter discover him. His wife isn't pleased by the music or him dancing with the maid. They talk about how Uncle Adam has been bringing strange objects in bags into the house at midnight for an experiment and they think maybe he has a bomb. Someone notifies the police.

At the police station, two policemen do a routine about what would happen in a confrontation with "Slaughterhouse Mike." They plan to go to the aforementioned family's house to find our if Adam's working on an atom bomb.

At the house, there's some musical entertainment for their guests with women dancing in costumes, and the guests sing along. Adam does a magic trick with one of the policemen while the other searches the house. In the end the truth of the mystery object is discovered.
