One of the Best of the Series
So You Don't Trust Your Wife (1955)

*** (out of 4)

Hilarious entry in the series has Alice asking questions about Joe's life insurance and soon poor McDoakes begins to think she's trying to kill him. He's paranoia grows even worse when a man shows up with an ax and a new "cook" shows up with rat poison. The Joe McDoakes series was always one of my favorites and this one here is without question one of the best because it has some of the biggest laughs and there were several moments where tears were running down my face from laughing. George O'Hanlon turns in one of his greatest performances as McDoakes because of the paranoia he has to pull off here. The look on his face as he feels Alice is trying to kill him is priceless and his final breakdown was downright hilarious and contained some of the biggest laughs of the series. The stuff dealing with the man and ax was terrific but things get even better once Joe is locked up in an asylum because he begins to think he's a dog. Fans of the series will certainly want to check this one out and if you're new to Joe McDoakes then it's a good place to start.
