Storyline

Plump, a bachelor wastrel who drinks too much and sleeps until noon, learns that his uncle, who thinks Plump is married with a baby, will arrive for a visit in two hours. He throws cash at the building's errand "boy," a small man who goes about grabbing or renting small children from their mothers then bribing various women to pose as Plump's wife. As Uncle John's arrival nears, Plump in desperation swaddles the errand boy and puts him in the crib. With various infants and women coming in and out, and several men looking for their lost babies or lost wives, will Plump pull off his deception? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

early Hardy comedy
6 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This zippy and fun short from 1916 - the time when Charlie Chaplin and Fatty Arbuckle were the big names in comedy - features the young Oliver Hardy as a ne'er-do-well who has to quickly impress his wealthy uncle by producing a wife and baby for his visit.

Of course this does not go smoothly and soon there are rather more wives and babies than he can cope with; plus the mandatory chases and misunderstandings that are the hallmark of early movie slapstick.

Restored well it can be viewed as part of 'The Early Films of Oliver Hardy' and is now available on DVD, a fine addition to the available corpus of the big screen favourite comedy duo.
