"The Ice Man" is an old fashioned farcical sketch in which a jealous husband wrongfully suspects his innocent wife. There is also the flip servant and the insipid neighbor, accused of having an affair with the wife, but in reality he does not know her. Everybody rushes in and out, everybody yells and the curtain falls on a "picture," with the insipid neighbor shorn of his outer garments, struggling vainly to discover what it is all about.
They still scream at these type of sketches on the small time.
