Standard marital farce, Jules White-style
22 October 2019 | by abbazabakyleman-98834See all my reviews

Shemp Howard and Early Cantrell basically reprise their roles from their first solo Columbia Open Season for Saps, a remake of the 1937 Charley Chase comedy The Grand Hooter. The standard plot is another "mistaken identity" story involving Shemp getting mixed up with another woman, played by Christine McIntyre. Tom Kennedy also appears as Shemp's pal who gets most of the brunt of the slapstick gags, along with Symona Boniface as a nosy neighbor and Cy Schindell in an over-the-top performance as McIntyre's serviceman husband. Not much else to say, but not one of Shemp's best.
