This film serves as a showcase for Stan Laurel's work as a director. Like Chaplin's direction of 'A Woman of Paris', Laurel didn't appear in 'Wandering Papas', but directed Oliver Hardy instead. It demonstrates his versatility as an actor, writer and director of not just his own work.
We know that Chaplin was good at directing his own work rather than other people's work, but whether or not Laurel was the same is irrelevant to this discussion.
