Synopsis

Collection of early shorts from legendary comedy pairing Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. 'Hustling for Health' (1919) begins with Stan missing the train due to take him on holiday. He ends up moving in with a family instead, to take care of odd jobs, but causes as many problems as he solves. In 'One Too Many' (1916), the only short of the three not to feature Stan, Ollie teams up with his pre-Laurel sidekick, Billy Ruge, to play the hapless duo of Plump and Runt. 'The Lucky Dog' (1921) marks the first joint appearance of Laurel and Hardy on screen, playing, respectively, a clueless man and a robber.
