That night, a prowler skulks, Miss Gainsborough faints, the newly-wed husband comes to her rescue, and she grabs him and holds on. His wife is offended and determines to leave with Roland.

First 100 Years, The (1924)

** (out of 4)

Harry Langdon and his new wife are shocked when their new cook arrives and she's a large, cigar smoking woman who is also quite ugly. This arrangement doesn't work out so they hire another cook but this one here is beautiful. The first half of the film dealing with the ugly cook contains some pretty good laughs including a great sequence where she scares Harry's bulldog who takes off running down the street dragging Harry with him. After this the film slows down without many laughs.
