One of the duo's better silent movies
Stan Laurel is once again called upon to slip into women's clothing in this silent short. Responsible for Ollie's wife leaving him, he must don some of her clothes to convince Ollie's wealthy uncle that he is Ollie's wife to avoid him losing an inheritance. Like all of the boys' movies, the story is merely a reason to involve Stan and Ollie in increasingly ridiculous situations, and the gags work pretty well here. Forced to go out on the town by the wealthy uncle, Stan has a stolen necklace dropped down the back of his gown at a nightclub, and Ollie's attempts to retrieve it provide plenty of laughs - especially when they emerge shame-faced from a telephone booth after being discovered by some guy wanting to use the phone. Two-thirds of the way in a priceless final gag is quietly and cleverly set up. One of the boys' better silent films.
