Okay...and nothing more.
11 June 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

During the 1940s, Shemp Howard made a bunch of short comedies for Columbia Studios--the same folks that were making films starring his brothers, Moe and Curly Howard (of The Three Stooges). Many of them seemed a lot like second-rate Three Stooges films and in a few cases the films were remakes of his brothers' shorts. Many others were essentially films featuring Shemp and his wife fighting....this is one of those pugilistic shorts. As usual, Early Cantrell plays the angry wife and in this case she thinks he was out cheating on her when he was actually out playing poker with his friends. To try to make her happy, Shemp decides to buy the wife a used car...unfortunately, the woman selling it turned out to be Shemp's old girlfriend...and the wife completely misunderstands and thinks he's fooling around on her.

Overall, this is a very typical but not especially funny short...much like Shemp's "Open Season on Saps". Not particularly inspired nor all that enjoyable....a case of pretty much the same old stuff.
