Homeless, penniless and one step ahead of the police, Stanley and Oliver take refuge in the home of big-game hunter Colonel Buckshot while the owner is on safari. When Lord and Lady Plumtree call to enquire about renting the house, Oliver pretends to be Colonel Buckshot, while Stanley masquerades as both butler and maid. All goes as well as can be expected, with Lady Plumtree and Stanley, in his guise as "Agnes," engaging in girl talk, until the real Colonel Buckshot returns unexpectedly. Written by

On the run from the police, Stan & Ollie hide in a deserted mansion. But when an English nobleman appears, wanting to rent the place & meet the owner and servants, the Boys find themselves in ANOTHER FINE MESS.
A funny early talkie. Highlight: Stan's hilarious impersonation of Agnes the Maid. That's James Finlayson as Colonel Buckshot, Charles K. Gerard & Thelma Todd as Lord and Lady Plumtree.
