Storyline

Oliver's in trouble with his wife after missing a payment on their furniture, having given the money to Stanley, who used it instead to pay Mrs. Hardy for his room and board. While doing the dishes, Stanley convinces Oliver to withdraw the family savings and buy the furniture outright. But they accidentally squander it at an auction, purchasing a grandfather clock which gets smashed on the way home. Mrs. Hardy's reaction sends Oliver to the hospital, where a blood transfusion from Stanley produces confusing results. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Money Matters With Mr. Laurel & Mr. Hardy
31 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A LAUREL & HARDY Comedy Short.

Ollie is having money troubles. First, there's an insistent creditor. Then, there's the mix-up with Stan as to who owes what where. Next, Mrs. Hardy won't let him touch the $300 in their joint account. Finally, there's an expensive misunderstanding at an auction. Poor fellow! To top off his really bad day, an unexpected trip to the hospital proves that blood really is THICKER THAN WATER...

A very funny little film. Highlight: the `I gave it to him' routine. That's diminutive Daphne Pollard as Mrs. Hardy, James Finlayson as the furious furniture store owner & Charlie Hall as the bank teller.
