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.
