How to Undress in Front of Your Husband (1937)

Director: Dwain Esper

Writer: Hildegarde Stadie

Composer: ???

Starring: Elaine Barrie, Trixie Friganza, Hal Richardson, Albert Van Antwerp

More info: IMDb

Plot: A "Peeping Tom" likes to look through windows at women undressing. We see him as he sneaks a peek at two "subjects". His first one, a young woman who apparently has a major lingerie fetish, is young, shapely and attractive. The second one--to be charitable--isn't. That doesn't stop him, and the viewer, from getting an eyeful.

My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

Fucking hilarious.  This 14 minute short is loaded with jokes.  A lot of them don't hold the funny like they did nearly 80 years ago but the ones the do are funny as shit.  All of the noises coming out of Trixie's mouth are priceless.  And damn those nasty censors!

Oh, wait, no.  Great job, censors!  Keep up the good work.
