| That awful McNasty!
Joe and his wife are in a bind. Their awful landlord, Mr. McNasty, wants to evict them and put in tenants who are willing to pay his ridiculous prices. This is because during and just after WWII, there was a severe housing shortage and folks were stuck in a seller's market. The Joe McDoakes short is all about the many hoops Joe needs to jump through in order to get a new apartment...and at the end, he's paying $500 a month...a princely sum back in the 1940s!

This one has a lot of good gags. While all the McDoakes films were enjoyable and fun, this one is a standout because of the many excellent laughs as well as the silly ending. I don't want to say more...but this is among the best of the series.
