Early Laurel and Hardy pairing
25 July 2009 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

This silent short isn't so much a Laurel & Hardy vehicle as a short in which they both appear. Hardy plays the butler to James Finlayson's carousing playboy millionaire. Finlayson awakens after a major session with the mother of all hangovers and a new wife he can't remember marrying. The wife comes complete with brother and sister-in-law who demand $50,000 from Finlayson to get out of his hair (metaphorically speaking, of course). Stan Laurel plays the lawyer Finlayson recruits to get him out of the pickle he's found himself in.

The film features an extended sequence in which Finlayson is concealed from his pursuers by pretending to be the bottom half of an improbably tall lady, the top half of which is Stan wearing a long robe. It's a trick that the trio used on at least two more occasions in the next few years (not that this was anything unusual, the early comics were always reworking previous material). Also of notice is an early use of hand-held camera - with only partial success - which definitely gives the film an in-your-face quality at times.
