Charley Chase is charming as heck in this cute little comedy about a husband and wife who secretly get plastic surgery and then attempt to have an affair– with one another!
This short is one of Chase’s most famous and its reputation is deserved. This thing is a scream! In addition to Chase at his best, we get Vivien Oakland ably supporting his antics and taking part in them herself. Director Leo McCarey plays the droll story for all it’s worth. An utterly hilarious way to spend twenty minutes.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.
Charley discovers his wife’s secret before she finds out his and is angered that she would dare cheat on him. He attempts to avenge himself but Vivien quickly sees through his ruse and give him a well-deserved smack.
If it were a dessert it would be: Inside-Out Chocolate Chip Cookies. A variation on a famous theme but a delicious one!
