I can`t rate THEIR FIRST MISTAKE as being one of the best L & H shorts . It`s basically a one trick pony of the boys trying to get a baby to sleep and .... well that`s it . It is impossible to dislike the slapstick pratfalls and there is a funny scene when Stan turns up at Oliver`s house to proclaim " I just came to tell Ollie that was me on the phone " but this was the only time I laughed out loud so I`ll only ever remember this as the one with the baby .
Oh hold on .... Mrs Hardy divorces Oliver because he spends too much time with Stan and later Stan and Ollie are seen sharing a bed . What an innocent time the 1930s were compared to today
