The gimmick in this film known alternatively as Wandering Papas and Enough To Do is that Stan Laurel directs the film that stars Australian comic Clyde Cook and also has Oliver Hardy playing a construction foreman.
Sad to say I saw a truly cut down version of the film only about 8 minutes of the original 20 and not enough to judge Enough To Do with any accuracy. Clyde Cook with his rubbery legs and walrus mustache did not register any personality with me.
Cook plays Cook in a railroad camp where the men are expecting a good meal because of a reputation Cook has. He actually has to catch the game he wishes to serve and most of the humor comes from that. Still in the end he disappoints those hungry men.
