Storyline

On off-camera narrator takes us through several scenarios of "just suppose." First, we watch what would happen if a private detective behaved at home as he does in the movies. It's a ticket to a domestic disturbance. Next, a son gets to treat his father the way his father treats him. In the third episode, to a shopkeeper's chagrin, a man shops for a hat the way a woman does, and in the last and longest sketch, we suppose a household in which the man gets pregnant and has a baby, while the mom, clueless about little children, is the one with the career.

What If
3 January 2010 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

I love the Pete Smith specialties from MGM. His snarky narration adds immeasurably to any comedy. You might not feel that way, and so find this simply a collection of old-fashioned blackout gags.

In this one we go through a bunch of assumptions and get Dave Barclay doing his fine comic takes and falls.

The assumptions are that men come home and greet their wives like they do in film noir movies; that parents and children reversed roles, that men chose hats the way women did and that men were the ones who had the babies. The second is the weakest of the lot, but they all have their moments.
