Stan purloins his wife's secret bottle of liquor to have a wild night out at the Rainbow Club with Ollie. However Mrs Laurel has replaced the booze with a noxious mixture of cold tea, mustard power and other hot ingredients. This doesn't prevent the boys from getting tipsy on the contents! Written by

The print shown on TCM is the 1938 re-release, with production code approval on the title card, and an updated background musical score, similar to the one heard in Block-Heads (1938). See more »
In the phone booth scene, when Hardy looks up Laurel's phone number the first time, he finds the number about one-inch into the directory. The second time he looks up the number, he goes much farther into the directory to locate the number. See more »

Stan & Ollie head for an evening at a ritzy nightclub, against the wishes of a furious Mrs. Laurel. After getting BLOTTO on a mixture of cold tea & Tabasco, the Boys make a noisy spectacle of themselves. But just wait until Mrs. L. shows up with a shotgun...
A very funny little film. Highlight: Stan's laughing fit. The tearjerker sung by the crooner that gets the Boys crying is `The Curse Of An Aching Heart', a popular ballad from 1913. Mrs. Laurel is played by Anita Garvin.
