This Laurel and Hardy two-reel silent involves the boys' attempts to repossess a radio from Collis P. Kennedy (Edgar Kennedy). A barking toy dog scares them off at first, but they come back with a borrowed Great Dane. The Great Dane is also scared off by the toy. Ollie apprehends Kennedy while Stan breaks for lunch, but escapes when Stan hands him a sandwich instead of the summons. Finally the paper is served and the boys have to take the radio. This they do after a number of pratfalls. The radio, however, ends up being run over by a steamroller. Kennedy finds this hilarious until his wife appears and informs him that she just paid for the radio; Stan and Ollie find this funny until the steamroller runs over their car. This unfairly-overlooked Laurel and Hardy film makes use of the boys' classic technique of building gag upon gag through a battle of wits. Big Business is a more well-known example of this strategy. ~ Janiss Garza, All Movie Guide
