Storyline

A man's life seems to be falling apart. He's bored with his job, gets passed over for a promotion and, when the pressures get to be too much, he tries to commit suicide, but he even fails at that and manages only to cripple himself instead of killing himself. Forced to stay at home, he finds the role of "househusband" enjoyable--until his wife takes a low-paying job with his old company, and rapidly rises up the corporate ladder.

Trivia

A Jewel Production. Universal, lacking a proprietary theater network, sought to assign brands to their releases, targeting independent theater owners to their audiences. Red Feather (low budget features, largely programmers), Bluebird (mainstream features) and Jewel (lavish, prestige films). Jewels (and occasionally "Super" Jewels) were the ones Carl Laemmle lavished money on in the hopes of securing special engagements drawing higher roadshow ticket prices. This 3-tiered system would end in 1929 after talkies became the norm. See more »
