Under Mabel's bed
3 February 2011 | by AAdaSCSee all my reviews

Newly-wed Gary (Dennis O'Keefe) tries to steal a neglige that he previously gave to Mabel (Gail Patrick) as a present. He tries to steal it coz the bitch is threatening to show it to his wife Geraldine (Marjorie Reynolds) at a weekend party that she is hosting. A few other characters are involved but the film mainly follows Gary's attempt to destroy the evidence....if he can find it....

The film has a few funny moments and the story could have been wrapped up after 2 minutes if Gary had just explained the situation to Geraldine at the beginning. There is no reason why he shouldn't have done precisely that. But, despite Mabel being a despicable monster for her actions, and Geraldine, at times, being an annoying drip of a woman, the film is lightweight fluff that passes the time. The dialogue is funny but the story drags on a bit and I got bored with it.
