Likable early Laurel and Hardy short.
"Endearing" is what springs to mind on viewing this early Stan and Ollie entry. Sure the jokes are as hoary as hell these days, but they're funny anyway. 78 years old at the time of writing this may be, but the sight of Ollie buried in a giant cake for the umpteenth time is simply irresistible. Edgar Kennedy directed it, and threw a few unusual shots into the mixture. Stan does his "Salad Undressed" routine. And as for Anita Garvin? All I can say is that it was love at first sight! Delectable and funny, she almost steals the film from the boys. Upon viewing the chaos surrounding the dinner party it is certainly apparent why the keeping of servants was no longer so fashionable!
Social comment? No, merely the boys having fun.
