Laurel & Hardy: Be Big



Laurel and Hardy are almost on their way to Atlantic City with their wives, when Ollie gets a phone call from Cookie, a lodge buddy. Cookie tells Ollie that a stag party is taking place that night in their honor and reveals irresistible details of the event when Ollie says they won’t be able to attend.

Ollie pretends to be sick and sends the wives on ahead, promising that he and Stan will meet them in the morning. The pair dress in their lodge gear and there are scenes of a lengthy struggle to pull one of Stan’s boots off Ollie’s foot. The wives then return having missed their train and with no obvious escape route Stan and Ollie take to a Murphy bed in fear and in response to Stan’s plea of “What’ll I do?”, Ollie replies “Be big!”.
