Not quite as bad as many of Langdon's other Columbia shorts.
2 August 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

After starting off very well during the silent era, the quality of Harry Langdon's comedies decreased over the years. His films with Roach and Educational Pictures were significantly poorer than his silents, though his final years were much worse...making a string of mostly unfunny shorts for Columbia. This is one of his Columbia shorts....so my expectations for this one were very low.

Compared to the other Langdon films he made for Columbia, this one is better than average. This is NOT a glowing endorsement, because while it has a few laughs, much of the humor is nothing like Langdon's earlier and gentler humor. Instead, it relies on a lot of low-brow slapstick--exploding appliances, a jealous boyfriend shooting at Harry and the like. Langdon had never been a slapsticky sort of guy and yet here he is...out of his element and in a film that is, at best, mildly funny and no more.

By the way, Harry's wife in this one is played by Barbara Pepper--the woman who later went on to play the first Mrs. Zipfel on "Green Acres".
