| Worth seeing so you can get a look at Arthur Q. Bryan
While this is far from the best of the Joe McDoakes shorts, it is worth seeing for a few of the jokes and in order to see Arthur Q. Bryan in the flesh. Who IS Arthur Q. Bryan? Well, he was the man who provided the voice for Elmer Fudd in the Looney Tunes cartoons and, oddly, he sounds EXACTLY like this character....and looks a bit like him, too!

Joe's wife (the first TV Lois Lane, Phyllis Coates) wants him to wallpaper the room--and have it done by this afternoon for her tea party! Joe (George O'Hanlon) gets his dopey friend to help him. Together, they work sort of like Laurel & Hardy or the Three Stooges but with less finesse or grace. Still, despite this there are some decent laughs--particularly at the end. So PLEASE keep watching and you'll see what I mean. Not great but worth seeing.
