An early version of what seems to have been a sort of signature skit for Linder: it was remade in 1914, and then a portion of the remake
appears in another film as the catalyst that spawns a Max Linder imitator. This version includes André Deed (as the real pedicurist, who ends
up romancing the wife), Pathé's star comic before Linder. Deed's exit from Pathé gave Linder his opportunity for stardom. This may be the
only surviving film where they are seen together - although with the poor quality and distant camera, actually not much can be seen.
