Although Oliver Hardy doesn't appear in this comedy, which features his future partner Stan Laurel, his name does -- there is a character named Sir Oliver Hardy. In the leads are fading stars Agnes Ayres and Forrest Stanley. A wife (Ayres) is being blackmailed by her former lover, Sir Oliver Hardy, and she enlists the help of her butler, Anatole (Laurel), to retrieve her love letters from Hardy's safe. They sneak into the home and blow up the safe, but they're discovered by Hardy's assistant (Jerry Mandy). The wife's husband (Stanley) shows up at Hardy's home, and Anatole is forced to dress up like a woman to distract him while the wife escapes. The husband and the butler, still in drag, return home, and the husband tries to hide the "woman" while lecturing his wife. The wife makes up a convoluted story, which the husband gets wise to, but he never lets on.
