Eve (Agnes Ayres) gets a letter from her ex lover, Sir Oliver Hardy (Jerry Mandy), where he threatens to show her husband, Adam, the burning love letters she wrote to him before she married, unless she pays $10 000.
Eve and Anatole, the butler (Stan Laurel), go to steal the love letters from Oliver Hardy but Adam (Forrest Stanley) in the meanwhile finds out she has gone. He suspects she has been unfaithful and goes home to Hardy to see if she is there. The film turns in to a wonderful slap stick after that where Eve does her best to play on Adam. One of her tricks is to dress the butler up as a woman. The butler makes a pass on Adam, who seems interested. Adam and Eve try to pass the blame from there on, until Adam finds out about the tricks and forgives Eve.

I love Laurel & Hardy, I love the films of Laurel & Hardy and I'm always interested in Laurel & Hardy's solo work such as this, Eve's Love Leters (1927) Starring Stan Laurel. What striked me was that there is a character by the name of Sir Oliver Hardy, this is a great short from the lot of fun, The Hal Roach Studios.
