Pleasant Feature That Works All Right, Given the Flimsy Premise
For such a lightweight premise, "Know Thy Wife" works out all right, and delivers a few worthwhile laughs. It starts with a young man trying to disguise his new wife as a male, in order to fool his parents, but Dorothy Devore really is too feminine for this setup to be at all believable. Still, from there the setup leads to some amusing, if mostly predictable, developments when the young couple go to meet the in-laws. The characters are likable enough that you want to find out how things turn out for them.

Overall, while this is nothing special, it works as light entertainment. It's a pleasant little feature, not bad for its kind, and worth watching for fans of silent comedies.


Release Date:

30 December 1918
