Mary Jane’s Mishap

Poster for the movie ""

Mary Jane tries to light the oven. When she’s unsuccessful, she plays around, getting black boot polish on her face. She mugs before a mirror. Then, it’s back to work. When the stove still won’t light, she pours in paraffin, winks at the camera, and lights a match. Kaboom! Is there any rest for the foolish, even in the grave?
