You just have to see this to believe it!
4 August 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very strange yet enjoyable comedy short starring Stan Laurel before being ultimately teamed with Oliver Hardy. He plays a private eye and a lady comes to her house and wants her husband investigated--she thinks he's a crook and a womanizer. The film is filled with quite a few funny gags and one you absolutely must see to believe is Stan dressed as a vamp!! It's rather disturbing how good he looks actually! In addition, there are lots of cute gags once he meets up with the husband's gang--involving Stan getting bonked on the head but ultimately culminating with his defeating the gang and saving the day. Sure, this isn't the most intellectual silent comedy, but with so much energy and fun, you can't help but laugh!
