Stick Around

(1925)

Comedy / Silent

24 minutes

Directed by Ward Hayes

Cast:

Oliver Hardy as Paperhanger aka 'Babe' Hardy
Hazel Newman as Nurse Zenia Zane
Harry McCoy as Dr. Brown
Bobby Ray as Paperhanger's Helper

Diminutive Bobby Ray and portly Oliver Hardy play employees of the Blatz and Blatz Interior Design company, hired to wallpaper Dr. Brown's sanitarium. When an inmate accidentally drops alcohol into the hospital's water supply, the two drunken wallpaperers go at their work with a vengeance.

A now-forgotten comic, Ray looked enough like Stan Laurel for this inexpensive two-reel comedy to be advertised as a Laurel and Hardy offering when released to the home movie market in the early 1960s. Hardy himself later acknowledged that his character in this film resembled the Ollie of later fame, with a condescending attitude toward his less-brainy partner, dainty hand gestures and all.

Produced by comedian Billy West and released as a "Mirthquake Comedy," Stick Around also featured Hazel Newman as a nurse and Harry McCoy as the owner of the sanitarium.
