Early to Bed

Mr. Hardy receives a boon from his uncle, takes over Hardy Manor, hires Mr. Laurel as his butler, and tortures him with pranks.

Mr. Laurel tries to quit, there is a great deal of knockabout and it is seen laughingly that Mr. Hardy is a fixture of the place.

The entire work, which Skretvedt inexplicably describes as a “clinker”, exhibits a great tendency toward an anagram or variant of Losey’s The Servant.
