A man is delivering a pair of trousers that a woman has ordered for her husband. She asks him to try them on himself, so that she can see how they fit.

Caught without his own pants, the delivery man manages to take the detective's pants from him, setting off a chaotic series of similar incidents. Written by Snow Leopard

A Charley Chase classic
11 February 2001 | by (Plano, Texas) – See all my reviews

Charley Chase has to deliver a pair of pants to a rich man's house. When he gets there, the man's wife has him try them on to see how they look. Unfortunately, the rich man arrives home early, with lots of guests. When Charley hastily tries to put his pants back on, a dog rips off his pants. Charley has to figure out how to get out of the house quickly. When that does not work, he tries to steal other people's pants instead! While only available in fragmentary form, this excerpt is very funny and any fan of silent slapstick will love it.

A nine-minute excerpt from this film is available on THE LOST FILMS OF LAUREL & HARDY #6 DVD. Although it is not listed on the packaging or the DVD menu, it is shown after the last short FORTY FIVE MINUTES FROM HOLLYWOOD. Some might consider this a bonus, others a mistake.
