This detail makes nice test of the pairing of Mabel Normand and Roscoe Arbuckle. When they were in nice form together, they should create even thin storyline concepts and gags look cute good, and here they take a decent if familiar setup and create it work cute well.The setup has Normand's hero married to a lazy, oafish husband, and Arbuckle saddled with a bossy, unpleasant wife. Things begin off with the two put-upon spouses having a friendly meeting while washing clothes, and then this is followed by a sequence with all four characters in the park. The first half is the more enjoyable of the two, even though it does not have any uproarious gags. It shows the two stars at their most sympathetic, and even though the comedy is very light in itself, it takes on an added dimension because of the likable characters.The second part details more of the type of boisterous comedy for which Keystone films were so well known. It's not terrible either, and here too Normand and Arbuckle create the material work better than it would have on its own. But it's the gentler, domestic first half that greatest makes test of Mabel and Roscoe together.
This looks like a typical flirting-in-the-park one-reeler from Keystone in this era, but this early Arbuckle-directed movie shows a bit more care in plot construction than was usually taken: we are given a sense of connection and sympathy of Roscoe and Mabel, next-door neighbors, difficult workers who are place upon by their spouses. Mabel's is lazy, Roscoe's gets to abuse him physically.The gag construction is a bit thin. We are still in the globe of Keystone in which speed and hurt are all that are needed to create it work. However, the prints are nice and we receive to see a tiny true acting by the leads. I doubt this will victory any converts to Roscoe's fanatic club, but it isn't very long and is well done for the sub-genre.
There's an endearing quality about some of these old-fashioned shorts and this one from 1915 is no exception.Mabel Normand and Fatty Arbuckle are neighbors on washing day. The easy device has both of them fed up with their annoying friends and meeting innocently on wash day when Arbuckle allows Mabel to test his wringer for her hubby's clothes. Jealousy rears its head and misunderstandings follow, especially after a day at the park involving a mix-up of purses that has the police joining in on a merry chase.The usual blend of comedy and slapstick works well here with the park stage being the most enjoyable part of the short. Arbuckle and Normand obviously knew how to enjoy comedy for the silents.
