In the dead of winter, street musicians Stanley and Oliver aren't getting much business in a run-down neighborhood, and then their instruments are smashed in a run-in with a formidable woman. Their luck seems to turn when they find a wallet full of money, but are about to lose it to a thief when a passing policeman chases the thug off. The boys treat the officer to a meal, but when Stanley pulls out the wallet to pay, the cop recognizes it as his own. Rather than running them in as pickpockets, he pays his own tab and leaves Stanley and Oliver at the mercy of the gruff headwaiter. Written by

This film was simultaneously produced in a Spanish language version, Tiembla y Titubea with the actors speaking their own lines. Laurel and Hardy read their lines from cue cards on which Spanish was written phonetically. At the time of early talkies, dubbing was not yet perfected. See more »
When the two take off running with the wallet, Hardy has it. After they crash into the cop, Laurel suddenly has it. See more »
Amusing short comedy with Laurel and Hardy as two street musicians in the cold winter of 1929.
While they don't deserve much entertaining the people on the streets their luck changes when Laurel finds himself a filled wallet. They're almost robbed but a cop comes to their rescue. To thank him, they take him to dinner.
When the check is due though they find out that the wallet they found is actually the cop's, so in the end they're thrown out of the place.
Amusing short from this funny couple, though a bit slow at times, in particular in the first part. 6/10.
