      Audience Member One of the duo's last short films is another to cherish, as they portray greeting-card salesmen who are only too successful at helping a neglected wife get more attention from her husband by making him jealous. Some really fine work by the boys here. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review william s Has merit as a Laurel and Hardy movie but not one of their classics. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Good quality short feature. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Mike M Presumably issued as a Laurel & Hardy Christmas special - the pair are out selling (abysmal) greetings cards when they get caught up in a plot to make the husband of one of their prospective customers jealous - and maybe 'twas the season, because it takes almost a full reel to warm up. The OTT characterisation of the hubby ("You're making a terrible mistake - you, the best shot in all Paris!") and clever plotting nudges it along - on the night of the duel he's trying to avoid fighting, Ollie passes out in a drunken stupor, only for the nightcops to deliver him at the address on his opponent's card - though it's Stan's reaction to a long-distance phone call from Atlanta, Georgia that remains the undisputed highlight.
