This is a rather dull film starring a young Stan Laurel. Seeing this film you really can't tell that a future super-star was in the making--mostly because the script isn't funny and there really isn't much to recommend this bad film.
Stan plays a janitor at a hotel and frankly nothing he did made me laugh. From dropping letters and trying to retrieve them with a vacuum, getting wet, helping a lady shoot her cheating husband and being chased by the police, none of these are particularly good and there is no real coherent plot--just of moments all strung haphazardly together. Of interest ONLY to Laurel and Hardy completists (like myself) who want to try to see every extant film of these men--even their obscure early stuff. This one, by the way, deserved to be obscure!!
