Harry Myers is the model husband. He leads various civic groups, never drinks and brings breakfast in bed to wife Rosemary Theby and their three boys, according to gossip Nora Cecil. All the husbands in town hate him, but the woman are going to elect him mayor.
That's in public, of course. In private he womanizes, drinks, is a tyrant of the breakfast table and he and his wife throw a lot of dishes at each other.... when no outsiders are looking.
It's a lively comedy for the popular pair of comedians. When Mr. & Mrs. Sidney Drew and Mr. & Mrs. Carter DeHaven may be better remembered, Myers was a successful comic, now best remembered for playing the drunk millionaire in CITY LIGHTS. Judging by this movie, they did not stick to the model of middle-class domesticity, but pushed past the bounds of propriety. They must have had a good time. In 1924, Myers divorced his wife of seventeen years and married his movie partner. They were together until his death in 1938.
