Isnt Life Terrible? is a 1925 film starring Charley Chase and featuring Oliver Hardy and Fay Wray. This short is a parody on D. W. Griffiths 1924 drama Isnt Life Wonderful (1924).

Isnt It Shocking? movie scenes Things escalated so much that director William Freidkin actually called in his own exorcist to bless the film set and put the cast and crew at ease

The staircase used in this film is the same outdoor staircase seen in Hats Off (1927) and The Music Box (1932). The staircase still exists in Silver Lake, Los Angeles.

Charley is plagued with failure and with his brother-in-law, who's allergic to labor. When he decides to take the family on a camping trip, his wife learns about a contest sponsored by a pen company, with the first prize being an ocean trip. To win the prize Charley has to sell those pens - surprisingly he wins, but the ship turns out to be a wreck on it's last trip to the scrapyard. To make things worse they accidentally leave their young daughter on the dock and the ship sails without her. What else can go wrong on this trip?
