Stan & Ollie are GOING BYE-BYE! Butch, a notoriously violent criminal has threatened them with great bodily harm for squealing on him. Wanting to get out of town fast, and not aware that Butch has escaped the police, the Boys arrange to travel with a shady lady to share expenses. Naturally, she turns out to be Butch's girlfriend and the hilarity begins when they all show up at her apartment...
A very funny little film - the slapstick `trunk sequence' is wonderful. That's Mae Busch as the girlfriend and Walter Long as Butch.
