    Originally released in July 1928 (and one of the first "all-talking" comedy shorts released), this is a slight reworking of Benchley's "The Courtship of the Newt", covering basically the same ground as the original. For many years, this film was considered to be "lost"- this print is probably the only surviving copy.

    1928 makes it a rather early sound film!

    that's one of the reasons why men get a sex change. or they feel they are lacking in general.

    This is excellent. Thanks so much for posting. This short was among the 25 movie classics to be preserved for posterity by the Library of Congress' National Film Registry.
