Movie Info

The silent era's foremost comedienne, Mabel Normand, plays a taxi dancer in this 2-reel farce produced by Hal Roach. In order to impress one of her customers, a wealthy young man (Theodore Von Eltz), Mabel pretends to live in a mansion, a minor fib which leads to the expected confusion. Co-written by a pre-Laurel and Hardy Stan Laurel, The Nickel Hopper is mainly of interest for brief appearances by a young Boris Karloff, as one of Mabel's dance partners, and Oliver Hardy, whose footage seems to have been filmed at a later date.

All Critics (1)

So-so silent comedy, with amusing performances by two unbilled young actors: Boris Karloff and Oliver Hardy.
