This showed how much Stan needed Ollie
9 August 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film was made long before Stan Laurel was teamed up with Oliver Hardy. This film was made the same year the team's first picture was made (LUCKY DOG), but it was still eight years before they began deliberately putting the two in the same film. Without Oliver Hardy, Stan was a solo act for about a decade. Some of his films, such as DR. PYCKLE AND MR. PRYDE, was exceptionally funny, while many such as HUSTLING FOR HEALTH were rather tedious.

The film begins with Stan about to go on vacation. However, he arrives late for the train. A stranger offers to let him come to his house because he'll be able to get all the relaxation he needs there. However, it's soon apparent that this "benefactor" is a jerk and he puts Stan to work around the noisy house. None of the jokes are particularly funny and there seems to be absolutely no reason for Stan to stay in this place. In fact, the film might best be described as tedious--which is very sad as I love silent comedy and most of the films of Stan Laurel.
