Storyline

Charlie is the great divorce attorney, in demand by all women wishing to shed their husbands. While explaining to one woman how to obtain a divorce by getting photos in a compromising situation, his wife inadvertently sees him and thinks the worst. With the connivance of a doctor pal who lives across the hall, Charlie manages to bundle his wife off to the country for a rest cure. Somewhat implausibly, he's randomly chosen by the husband of the other woman to serve as the lover in the compromising photos they need for their divorce. Further complications lead to the other woman showing up at Charlie's apartment. He thinks his wife has been sent off to the country and he'll have a quiet evening by himself at home, but neither of those assumptions proves correct. Typical farce ensues as the woman hides under the bed, Charlie contends with the jealous husband, and Charlie's wife unexpectedly turns up.

A typical Charlie Chase short
25 March 2010 | by ReiherSee all my reviews

Charlie is playing his usual character here, the middle-class husband who gets in trouble with his wife. In this case, he's a divorce lawyer who innocently gets dragged into another couple's scheme to obtain a divorce by producing photos of the wife in a compromising situation with "another man" - Charlie, of course. Spouses show up unexpectedly at the least convenient moment, doors slam, women are hidden under beds, the wrong person is always listening when anything compromising is said, and general hilarity ensues. It's quite implausible, but also very amusing. The quality of the gags and direction is pretty strong, and Chase gives his typically funny performance.
