Second half makes it work
10 November 2003 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A professor needs a body to experiment on and Laurel & Hardy are the persons to get that body from the graveyard. The police knows what they are about to do and tries to stop that.

This short is a little boring in the first half, although there are some nice moments with white paint. The second half is better and starts with some very funny scenes involving a wall Laurel & Hardy have to climb. That wall is the main object in another great scene a little later. Because of the second half this is a very good one.
