Chickens Come Home


Ollie is the owner of a successful business selling fertilizer, and he’s also running for mayor. But an old girlfriend shows up with an incriminating picture she wants to sell him. Stan is recruited to try to keep her away from a dinner party Ollie is throwing with some influential potential donors. I’ve always felt that when the boys are prosperous the comedy never works quite as well as when they are down and out, or only in business in a small way. Funny, but not one of their classics. Best gag: When Stan backs into a car behind him, and it instantly falls into ten thousand pieces.
