Trivia

Since both Laurel and Hardy appear in the film it is considered an early Laurel and Hardy film despite the fact that Hardy's role is just a bit part, and they barely share any scenes in the film at all. See more »

Goofs

In several instances, Mrs. Tillsbury, refers to her husband, Titus, by the wrong name. After Titus has collapsed in his office, you don't have to be much of a lip-reader to see her exclaim "Jimmy!" referring to actor James Finlayson by his real name, instead of his character name. See more »

Inferior to the Remake, but Still a Good Comedy.
26 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Later remade as a talkie in the thirties as "Chickens Come Home", also staring Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy and James Finlayson, this film, while inferior to the remake, is still a pretty nice movie, with the excellent Finlayson getting the lions-share of the jokes with Laurel quickly following behind. The plot, while the same as the remake, has interesting casting differences. Here, Finlayson plays the blackmailed husband, not Hardy, who is given the nothing role of a house guest. Laurel is in the same role as the blackmailed husband, but is quite unlike the later roles he played, and is definitely not meek. So, it's not exactly a masterpiece, but a good example of silent comedy, and a must for Laurel and Hardy buffs.
