Plump and Runt get into a poker game at the club and are arrested. The judge gives them thirty days. Before going to jail they phone their anxious wives that an important business trip will keep them away from home for a month. In the jail they meet a hobo who attaches himself to them. Released, they find that the knight of the road cannot be shaken off, so they are forced to introduce him to their wives as a friend, a famous detective in disguise. He makes life a burden for them until the wives, taking matters into their own hands, drive off the hobo with carving knives. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

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 'Thirty Days'. 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.
