Excellent movie classic
17 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was the last comedy Stan Laurel made for Hal Roach's Rolin studios (he would return to Roach five years later and eventually team up with Oliver Hardy there). Stan misses the train that's supposed to take him on a vacation, so his friend (Frank Terry) offers to put him up for some rest and relaxation. Unfortunately, the friend's wife (Marie Mosquini) is a hardcore suffragette and she gives her husband an angry dressing down for bringing Stan home. A health inspector (Noah Young) orders the friend to clean up his backyard, and Stan is put to work at the chore. He empties the yard by tossing all the junk into the neighbor's yard, and when the wife refuses to make him lunch, he also steals the neighbor's food. The neighbor (Bud Jamison) comes over for lunch, and is none too pleased to discover that he is eating his own food. Stan beats a hasty retreat, but not before flirting with the neighbor's daughter.
