Among the horses stable hands Stanley and Oliver are tending is a thoroughbred named "Blue Boy." But when they overhear two men talking about a $5000 reward for the return of the stolen "Blue Boy," they miss the part about it being the painting, not the horse. They get the owner's address, though, and bring the horse along to claim the reward. They wonder at the rich man's instructions to put "Blue Boy" on the piano but, Oliver explains, "these millionaires are peculiar."Written by

Director Leo McCarey got the inspiration for the movie's plot while sitting in his dentist's chair and seeing a copy of the famous "Blue Boy" painting on the dentist's wall. See more »

The available print has been composed from material lifted from different sources. The opening MGM credits are not the originals but a recreation using the ones from "Big Business" changing the title and certain names. Most of the film itself was lifted from elements used in the Robert Youngson compilation "Laurel & Hardy's Laughing Twenties" and for this reason the quality of the images constantly switches from excellent to mediocre, since the rest of the film was probably lifted from worn 16mm prints.

The comedy duo of Laurel and Hardy provides a lot of laughter for 'Wrong Again'.
American director Leo McCarey is known for his comedy films. "Wrong Again" is one of his famous silent comedy films for which he worked with undisputed kings of comedy namely 'Stan Laurel' and 'Oliver Hardy'. This is a film which offers twenty minutes of pure laughter without any boring moments. As in other films with Laurel and Hardy, it takes some time to build an atmosphere for comedy. Before such an atmosphere is created, viewers get to see them as ordinary people like you and I. In the beginning, they are seen as workers in a stable whose task is to take good care of an important horse who is called "Blue Boy". However, once they get hold of something comic, daring, both of them make a point to launch an all out attack using their comical methods. For "Wrong Again", Laurel and Hardy get into trouble as they are unable to decipher the message correctly from a group of people. Apart from these two comedians, there is also a horse who works hard only when he is pushed to do so Lastly, wrong Again is the a kind of film where humans and an animal try to outsmart each other !
