The novelty is in the setting from which the sketch derives it’s name. A combination drop which unfolds to represent a “centre door fancy”setting. Mr. Monroe is not an actor in the true sence.
Resembles a sketch based on mistaken identity. Mrs. Monroe plays a French maid and a wife. The woman just says "ze" alot to appear French. She does better as the wife.

"It is not a sketch; it is a pity."
