  ....... A suspicious wife contacts a detective agency when she suspects her husband is messing around with other women.  When she demands to see the man in charge, the secretary pulls off her wig to reveal that she is in fact a man in disguise and uses this to snag the victim (Finlayson).

The ten minutes are padded out with the husband following women along the sidewalk and even getting himself involved with a baby in a pram, who squashes his hat.

To be fair it's not all that funny.  The disturbing part about is the fact the detective looks very convincing as a woman!

•The IMDb list the wife as Marjorie Whiteis.  I have long suspected this is not true and instead I have gone with my own judgment and named her as Lyle Tayo.
