Visiting Oliver in the hospital where he's recovering from a broken leg, Stanley wreaks havoc on both his friend (getting Oliver strung up from the ceiling by his cast-encased leg) as well as the doctor, who winds up dangling out the window. After they're ordered out, Stanley tries to drive Oliver home, unaware that he's just accidentally injected himself with a powerful sedative.Written by

The exterior of the County Hospital was the City Hall for Culver City. Part of the frontage is still standing, albeit inside a compound. See more »
[Stan tries to help him get his pants on, but the giant cast on his foot prevents the right leg from fitting]
You know you can't put them over that foot. Get the scissors and cut the leg off.
[Stan looks surprised, thinking that's a bit drastic. Still, he looks along the cast for a place to cut]
The leg of the PANTS!

The original MGM credits were replaced around 1937 for a reissue in which the names of the director and others were removed. The Film Classics reissue, based on the 1937 reissue (and issued on DVD), removed all references to MGM although the opening lion can still be heard on the soundtrack. See more »
A LAUREL & HARDY Comedy Short. Ollie is blissfully relaxing in the COUNTY HOSPITAL with unspecified problems with his right leg. His peace is shattered when Stan arrives for a visit. After innocently proceeding to wreck the room & nearly killing the doctor, Stan sits on a hypodermic full of sleeping medication. He then attempts to drive Ollie home (he's been thrown out by the infuriated doctor). Chaos ensues as sleepy Stanley proceeds down a very busy city street.
A fine little film, though not in the same class as the Boy's classics. One has to wonder - again - how Ollie could engage in such rough physical comedy without breaking his neck. That's Billy Gilbert as the harassed & harried doctor.
