Originally meant to be three reels, the first reel is now lost and exists only in stills. This was set aboard ship and featured James Finlayson and Tiny Sandford. See more »
After Walter Long is hit by the weighted glove on Stan's right hand, the glove falls with Long to the boxing ring floor. But the next scene has Stan with BOTH gloves on, as the weighted glove hits the referee. See more »
This is another nice Laurel & Hardy comedy short, in black and white with sound. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy want a room in a hotel. In that hotel a young woman (Julie Bishop, but credited as Jacqueline Wells) who is working there is forced to marry the hotel manager (Walter Long). Of course Stan & Ollie makes sure this will not happen. Later that day, when the two heroes need some money, Ollie arranges a boxing match to earn some. He wants Laurel to fight and the opponent happens to be the hotel manager.
This comedy short has some great moments. Especially the boxing match is terrific. The first half is a little slower than other Laurel & Hardy movies, but gives us some laughs anyway.
