| Nothing Great But Worth a Look
Victor Moore plays Otis Foster, the henpecked barber husband of Emma (Helen Broderick), who is always entering contests. She manages to become a finalist in a contest to determine "Mrs. America," the model American housewife. The winner of the contest is determined by the best homemaker. The problem is Emma can't cook, clean, or do anything around the house. Her poor husband Otis does all of that at home. So Emma schemes to win the contest by having Otis do all the work for her.

Good chemistry between vets Moore and Broderick. Beautiful Anne Shirley plays their daughter. Sadly, she's largely wasted here. See Anne of Green Gables or Chatterbox for how good she can be with comedy. Here she's stuck as the romantic subplot with handsome Alan Bruce. They make a pleasant couple and don't detract from things, but I wish she had been given more to work with. All in all, it's a nice little B comedy. Nothing I would go out of my way to see again but worth watching once.
