British music hall favorite Lupino Lane enjoyed an energetic if not spectacular film career in Hollywood. Largely confined to 2-reelers, Lane managed to star in one feature film, Friendly Husband. In this one, he plays the very patient spouse of featherbrained Alberta Vaughan. And, of course, he is saddled with the obligatory mother-in-law, here played by the fearsome Eva Thatcher. The martial-farce plot complications allow Lane to indulge in his world-famous athletic slapstick, including his legendary "scissors kick."
