This two-reel comedy-thriller was the second picture that Clyde Cook made for the Hal Roach studios. When a couple divorces, the wife (Fay Holderness) finds herself in the unusual situation of having to pay alimony to her ex-husband (Noah Young), a wrestler. The wife goes through some hard financial times and finds it difficult to make the payments. Subsequently her ex-husband ends up living with her. Her answer to the problem is to run an ad in the matrimonial section of the newspaper. The man who replies is a sailor (Cook) who joined the Navy to see the world -- and spent four years in a submarine. His luck doesn't improve any after he marries the wife. The sailor has no clue that the ex-husband is actually part of the household, and it only is revealed to him bit by bit. Eventually he is forced to share a room with the ex and, worse yet, has to go to work. The sailor's efforts to escape take him up to the steel beams of a half-built skyscraper, with funny, and frightening, results.
