A paperhanger and his helper arrive at a sanitarium to do a job. The chubby paperhanger leaves most of the work to his thin assistant, who tries gamely but usually makes a mess. Various patients at the asylum interrupt and complicate the work, and, to the dismay of the lazy boss, a nurse is attracted to the helper. Amidst all the paste, ladders, brushes, and the images of circus and jungle animals on the wallpaper, is there any way this job gets done to the satisfaction of the sanitarium's director?

The 23 Year Old Oliver Hardy
28 November 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the year that Charles Chaplin signed up with Essanay Films to write, direct and act in his own two reelers, Oliver Hardy (known as Babe Hardy) was earning his living by acting in one reelers such as 'The Paperhanger's Helper'. He would have to wait until he teamed up with Stan Laurel in 1927 in the classic silent short film, 'You're Darn Tootin', before he would receive the same level of success as Chaplin.
