A devoted and happily-married housewife organises a surprise party on the occasion of her husband's birthday, unbeknownst to her that her dentist spouse is experiencing a sudden mid-life crisis at his office.
Right before leaving for her Judo class at the gym, Alice Phelps tells her husband Ralph to clean off the snow-covered front walk before he leaves for work. Of course, Ralph ignores his wife, and as a result, when he returns home, he finds the body of the regular postman lying on his front stairs, who, obviously, slipped on the ice Ralph neglected to remove. Poor Ralph, what are you going to do when your wife returns?Written by
This short, which won a well deserved Academy Award, has got to be one of the most delightfully twisted cartoons I have seen in my life! Through a series of twists and turns so odd that it seems like a combination of Kafka and Hitchcock, we follow three people-a husband, his wife and the mailman-through a most eventful day for them all. It changes their lives most completely. Black humor runs throughout this absolute gem and it is delightfully funny! Though I wonder if the Canadian Postal union feels the same about this one! Most recommended!
