Stanley and Oliver try unsuccessfully to keep their pet dog, "Laughing Gravy" hidden from their grumpy landlord, who throws the pooch out into the snow. The rescue and further attempts to hide the dog result in mayhem, which is interrupted by the arrival of a registered letter informing Stanley that he's inherited a fortune from his rich uncle. There's one catch, though: he has to renounce his friendship with Oliver, who the uncle characterizes as a "nitwit." Written by

Stan and Ollie live in a rooming house. The room is located on the 2nd floor. The night is cold and snowy. Having a mean landlord is not a plus. Stan and Ollie find a mut in the freezing cold of winter. Being humanitarians and virtuous Stan and Ollie have to engineer a way to get the dog ( Laughing Gravy ) up to the nice, warm room. Try as they may they just can't seem to find a way to get the poor pooch up to the room. Many attempts are made. The last one succeeds much to their relief. Granted the dog does get taken upstairs with some success. That is just half the boys problem. The fact that the landlord has a double barreled shot gun is the other. You have to see what is CLASSIC old time comedy at it's best. This is performed never better than by the grand masters of comedy, Laurel and Hardy. See this movie if you can. Better, buy it if you can ( it is currently out of print ). The laugh will be on YOU to enjoy again and again.
