Both are so busy trying to make time with a flirtatious nurse that neither realizes they've accidentally brought the wrong wallpaper. Starring Oliver "Babe" Hardy and Bobby Day.

Dollars and Sense (1917): Ora Carew stars as both Hetty Hobbs and her trouble-making twin brother, whose antics eventually lead both of them to a hair-raising cliffhanger climax.
