Between attending to business calls and endeavoring to keep his assistants from making love to his pretty cashier, Runt has his hands full. To mend matters, his chef spoils the meal of a regular customer and he, being a typical son of Sunny Italy, shows his disapproval by trying to divert the circulation of the culinary artist's blood. In despair, Runt employs Plump as head chef. The latter's gifts are more in the line of lovemaking than in preparing the menu, and Runt discovers to his horror that he has only added another nuisance to his establishment. Things go from bad to worse. The Italian gentleman calls for another meal and Plump's cooking sends him into a couple of fits, in the course of which he makes good his threat and cleans up the whole place. Spaghetti flies through the air. Plump runs away with the cashier and poor Runt, trying to quell the disturbance, is finally buried under volley after volley of the stringy mixture.

The 24 Year Old Oliver Hardy
29 November 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the year when Charles Chaplin signed up with Mutual Films to write, direct, produce and act in his own two reelers, Oliver Hardy earned his living by acting in one reelers such as 'Spaghetti'. He would have to wait until 1927 when he teamed up with Stan Laurel in the silent classic short film, 'You're Darn Tootin', before he would receive the same level of fame as Chaplin.
