Storyline

Katrina decided to make some good old "kraut" as a surprise to her husband, "Frenchy." They went off for a month's vacation. Monsieur returned early. He issued forth from his apartment with a dull knife to sharpen. The smell of the seasoned "kraut" confronted the neighbors. The coroner, cops and undertaker arrived, but it took the German coroner to settle it. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

There are one or two good jokes
8 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

On the same reel with the foregoing is this, also a farce of comical characters and it has a tub of sauerkraut in it, the odor from which sets a bunch of farcical cops, undertakers and a Coroner doing stunts. There are one or two good jokes and the audience seemed to enjoy it. - The Moving Picture World, October 25, 1913
