| How do you get a husband to stay home? Answer: Break his legs!
This early Laurel and Hardy short is one of those movies that slipped through the net until I caught it for the first time today. And I really enjoyed it. Stan seems a little sharper than usual as he tries to tempt Ollie to the golf course (in real life Oliver was a golf fanatic) and there are some fine comic touches to be had.

Exhibit A: Ollie's "There's a right way to do it and a wrong way." And I know what way you're choosing Oliver!

Exhibit B: Ollie trying to follow Stan in jumping the fence.

Exhibit C: Edgar Kennedy gains a new, er hair extension. Didn't even recognise him until his wig fell off! There's also, of course, a brief scene where the boys haven't enough cash to pay for the drinks of their new female companions, a scene that was reworked to better effect in Men Of War. The mud fight at the end isn't as funny as similar scenes in other L & H films, but overall this is an enjoyable little short.
