Another of those early British farces having a ridiculous premise. A man, Makeham, is made president of The Henpecked Husbands' League (believe it or not). He saves his daughter Sheridan from a disastrous marriage to a crook posing as a rich man. Through this feat Makeham is able to

demonstrate to his wife who wears the pants in the family--his wife had tried marrying the daughter off to this crook in the first place. Had they had anything to work with, the actors might have created some genuinely funny moments, but it would be hard to find the slightest thing to laugh about

except the thought that someone actually had the naivete to make this milquetoast myth into a film.
