A sci-fi comedy where man's place is in the home?!
This film can be found on the Alpha Video DVD "Hal Roach Presents Early Pathe Comedies". This very strange comedy is set sometime in the future. In it, men are feminized housewives and women rule. I think this premise developed as a reaction to women's suffrage...as women just acquired the right to vote and the film predicted this future for society.
The Australian comic Snub Pollard stars in this one and he wears very frilly clothes and must fend off unwanted advances from the sexist ladies...in particular, one behemoth who won't take no for an answer. But Snub is married and a good husband...so he takes one of the airplane taxis home. However, soon this amazon arrives and begins making movies on him...and the wife is ALSO about the house! What's to come of this? See this silly little curio to find out for yourself.
The film is ludicrous...and funny. The meek and puny Snub makes a good lead in this one...and seeing women fighting over this pipsqueak is kinda funny. Not a great comedy but one worth seeing...and enjoying.
By the way, this film is directed by Charles Parrot...Charley Chase's real name under which he directed quite a few comedy shorts.
