Storyline

Leon buys a set of cooking utensils (he would) for his wife (Dorothy Christy) for their wedding anniversary, and the store sends Maizie (Claire Carleton) to his home to cook a demonstration dinner. A neighbor (Ida Moore) sees her and tells Mrs. Errol that Leon is "entertaining" a blonde. Leon is busily hiding Maizie from Mrs. Errol when her boyfriend Rocky (Tom Kennedy) also shows up.

She Certainly Is

Leon Errol is intent on buying wife Dorothy Christy jewelry for their anniversary. Cute sales clerk Claire Carleton talks him into cookware. As part of the promotion, she will be over to cook a meal for the couple. Dorothy, however, quarrels with Leon, goes home to her mother, and returns while the girl is in the apartment and her boyfriend, Tom Kennedy, is trying to protect her while a cop restrains him.

It's a bit unusual for Leon's long-running series of shorts for RKO. Usually, he is complicit in his comic torments. Here, except for thinking his wife will prefer cookware to jewelry, he does nothing wrong. I suppose his dithering and spoonerisms and twitching is the deepseated guilt from all those other comedy shorts.
