In the hospital with a broken leg Ollie is visited by Stan, who brings him hard-boiled eggs, nuts, and total mayhem.
Opening credits prologue: From 1927 to 1940, LAUREL & HARDY made marvelous short subjects and feature films at Hal Roach Studios, earning praise as the greatest comedy team ever produced by the movies or television. The world has never stopped laughing.
We are pleased to present newly restored and painstaking;y preserved original versions of these comedy masterworks. Transfered to safety film from the finest surviving 35 mm elements, all are complete, most have reinstated original titles, and two even contain new footage never before released!
The KirchGroup takes pride in preserving these classics for future generations.
Ollie's Hospital Roommate:
Hardy, ol' bean, what do you think?
Ollie's Hospital Roommate: I have on your trousers by mistake.
Ollie's Hospital Roommate: OH, I SAY!
The original MGM credits were replaced around 1937 for a reissue in which the names of the director and others were removed. The Film Classics reissue, based on the 1937 reissue (and issued on DVD), removed all references to MGM although the opening lion can still be heard on the soundtrack.
The original print of this film is probably lost. The available version (also on DVD) is a Film Classics reissue print derived from an MGM 1937 reissue when the director and technical credits were removed. The Film Classics version also removed the MGM lion, although it can still be heard on the soundtrack.
