A Smith called Pete narrates this short comedy about the travails of being married to David O'Brien. Having seen a lot of these shorts, one can sympathize. Miss Short mostly leaves the pratfalls to O'Brien, who also directs -- but she does a good slow burn, and keeps busy, plumbing out sinks and mopping floors in high heels, spilling things on herself and going bumpity-bump down the staircase. Pete Smith narrates in his typical snarky fashion, but it's clear that O'Brien is the butt of his scorn.

Dorothy Short and David Barclay were married when they made this movie. They were divorced four years later. Given this short subject, I'm surprised it lasted that long.
