Harry Dunkinson and Gerda Holmes are the principals in "The Household Comedian," a fable showing how a young lady thought her sweetheart's line of Bunk was clever during their courtship, but after being hooked up for a year, it wasn't quite so funny. She then took a turn at being clever and let him pay $100 a week alimony. "Why Essie's Friend Got the Fresh Air" is so true to life it makes it all the more laughable. Essie's friend is a clerk in a store, but spends most of his time at the 'phone gabbing with Essie. He got terribly sore when customers butted in on his social engagements. His boss got wise and canned him. In "The Prevailing Craze," Wallace Beery and Charlotte Mineau are arrested while going at a mile a minute clip in Beery's car. They jolly the constable along and teach him to dance the latest steps. The result is that he pays them for his lesson instead of fining them.
