This is a Harry Langdon from his later talking picture period--well after his heyday. During this later period, he mostly worked for third-rate studios and many of his films were remakes or reworkings of his earlier films. In many ways, this film is a reworking of HIS MARRIAGE WOW (such as the ring stuck in the tire bit) and a couple other films of Langdon's that I have seen. As a result, it comes off as very predictable and familiar--certainly not a "must-see" as the earlier silent versions were better--better paced and funnier. My advice is try to find the originals on the recent release "Harry Langdon: Lost and Found"--a four DVD set of his mostly earlier shorts.
