Early pairing of Laurel & Hardy
19 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

SLIPPING WIVES

Aspect ratio: 1.33:1

Sound format: Silent

(Black and white - Short film)

Frustrated by her husband's lack of attention, a bored socialite (Priscilla Dean) hires a paint delivery boy (Stan Laurel) to seduce her, thus sparking her husband's jealousy, but the butler (Oliver Hardy) is NOT amused...

One of the earliest pairings of L&H (solo performers at the time), this OK comedy is only fitfully amusing, toplining former stars Dean and Herbert Rawlinson as the warring couple whose dull marriage is revived by Stan's blundering attempts at seduction (he spends most of the time trying to avoid Dean's attentions!). Fred Guiol's film concludes with a fast-paced chase around Dean's/Rawlinson's house, as various farcical misunderstandings come to a head, but the movie is only of interest for the interaction between Stan and Ollie, developing the characterizations that would sustain them throughout the following decade. The same scenario was reworked by L&H in the 1935 short THE FIXER UPPERS.
