I love the Pete Smith specialties from MGM. His snarky narration adds immeasurably to any comedy. You might not feel that way, and so find this simply a collection of old-fashioned blackout gags.
In this one we go through a bunch of assumptions and get Dave Barclay doing his fine comic takes and falls.
The assumptions are that men come home and greet their wives like they do in film noir movies; that parents and children reversed roles, that men chose hats the way women did and that men were the ones who had the babies. The second is the weakest of the lot, but they all have their moments.
