Talk about starting off on the wrong foot!

When "From Bad to Worse" begins, Charley has gotten married. The very shy pair are on their honeymoon on a sleeper train when Charley sees an old friend. The friend, it turns out, knows a business prospect that Charley is trying to impress and the friend tells him that the guy is a real 'man about town'. In other words, Charley should impress the future client that he's a real playboy. The problem is that in the process he convinces his wife the same thing. Plus, the neighbor he's pretending to have a fling with turns out to be the wife of this man he's trying hard to impress.

This is a pretty typical Columbia short for Charley Chase, as many have him in various marital problems--usually where the wife thinks he's cheating on her. While not as good as many of his Hal Roach Studio shorts from earlier in his career, this one is agreeable and has a few laughs.
