Movie Info

This entertaining film is one of Laurel and Hardy's most bizarre. Stan and Ollie work as stable-hands for a racehorse named "Blue Boy." They overhear two men talking about "the famous Blue Boy," which has been stolen. There is a $5000 reward for its return, but the boys don't know that the men are talking about a famous painting. Trying to collect the reward, they take the horse to the mansion of the owner of the painting, arriving as he is getting out of the shower. Without looking at what Stan and Ollie have brought in, the owner tells them to put it on top of the grand piano. Stan does not understand, but Ollie tells him that rich people are "just the reverse" from everybody else. Stan and Ollie have quite a struggle to get the horse on top of the grand piano!more

Audience Reviews for Wrong Again

It's not every day that you see a horse stand on top of a piano. This silent short has a good premise: Stan and Ollie hear of a reward offered for the stolen "Blue Boy," but don't realize it's a famous painting. Instead, they try to return a horse named Blue Boy to the painting's wealthy owner. The man is upstairs when they arrive and doesn't realize their mistake, so he casually yells that the boys should bring "Blue Boy" inside. The predictable mayhem results. There's a cute running joke about a broken statue, but the pace bogs down with an overused sight gag about the horse knocking the boys' hats off their heads.
