Thicker Than Water

1935


A short comedy in three stages: firstly it's the "I give it (the money) to him to give to her to give to him and then he gave it back to me to give to her to give to him" routine when Fin turns up demanding payment for rental of some furniture. Later, as Ollie withdraws the couple's life savings of $300, he and Stan somehow manage to end up at an auction and win the bid for a grandfather's clock. The last stage of the film sees Mrs. Hardy's violent reaction towards her husband which lands him in hospital needing a blood transfusion. And Stan is on hand to donate his blood... with strange results!
This was the last 2-reel short they made.
