Storyline

Oliver stands to inherit a large fortune from his rich Uncle Bernal, with the condition that he be happily married. But when Mrs. Hardy walks out just before Uncle Bernal is due for a visit, Stanley is pressed into duty (and into drag) to impersonate Oliver's loving spouse. He's convincing enough to earn a pass or two from a drunk at a nightclub, but when a stolen necklace gets dropped down his dress, attempts to recover it disclose Stanley's true gender.

Stan in Drag Is Great
11 April 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A very conventional L & H plot. A rich uncle is looking to give the Hardys a large amount of money if they are happily married. Unfortunately, the wife takes off in the opening scene. When the uncle shows up, Ollie gets Stan to pretend to be the wife. This then becomes a steamroller as they try to pull off the charade. There are some particularly funny scenes in a night club. We know things will never work out for these guys. But Stan is a hoot.
