Stan Laurel suggested the ending, because his daughter was upset that Oliver Hardy was always hurting him. The tables were turned and Stan hurts Ollie, as a way to explain to her that they were "only pretending to hurt each other" See more »
A nice Laurel & Hardy movie where they are victims of the depression. After Laurel has burned their tent and lost their food and clothes they get something to eat from a nice old lady. They overhear the woman when she is talking to a man. He says she will be thrown out of her house because she can't pay the 100 dollars she owes him. Laurel & Hardy want to help the lady because she helped them. They still own a car and they try to sell it for the 100 dollars they need.
There are some pretty funny moments in this short movie, especially near the end. Another fine one by the two comedians.
