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?

Waiting For Laurel
12 July 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Stick Around or The Paperhanger's Helper finds Oliver Hardy as a wall paperhanger with Bobby Ray as an assistant who get a job at an asylum. That in itself guarantees a few laughs, the rest provided by the team of Hardy and Ray.

It certainly doesn't seem right. Bobby Ray as comic seems like a stand-in for Stan Laurel. He's got the general idea of Laurel's comic character. But while some of the gags involving wallpaper and the sticky paste you apply to fasten it to a wall, the spark of innocence that was Stan Laurel's is just not there.

The film has the look and feel of Ollie trying out a different Laurel before he found the right one.
