Let's get the bad points out of the way: Gus Meins was not a great comedy director, the series was a retread of one done at Sennett, the plot -- two low-class guys get confused for visiting European nobility -- had whiskers on it when Chaplin did it, this had no budget and Ben Blue is as funny as the guy who emphasizes his dirty stories by poking his elbow into your ribs.

On the other hand, you have Billy Gilbert. I don't think he ever gave a performance that wasn't great, and here he does a lot of his befuddled Dutchman act. The result is a comedy that is not great, but Mr. Gilbert will keep you chuckling throughout. Despite Ben Blue's efforts.
