Stanley Laurel: Why don't we get one of those trailers to hook on the back of your car. That's much better than sleeping in a tent. Wouldn't have to worry about flies.
Ollie Hardy: Can you take one of those things up into the mountains?
Stanley Laurel: Sure, right up in the high multitude. What do you think?
Ollie Hardy: We can't afford to buy one of those trailers.
Stanley Laurel: We don't have to buy one, we could rent one. I know a fellow who's got one for rent and I'll bet we can get it for next to nothing. I'll bet if we pay cash we can get it less than that. ...

Good Comedy With One of Their Most Hilarious Scenes
27 June 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a good Laurel & Hardy short comedy, with one particularly hilarious sequence. With Ollie suffering from too much high living, the two take a trip to the country to live the simple life for a while, but instead they find themselves getting into one caper after another. After some adventures of their own, they encounter a pair of stranded motorists. Their extended squabble with Charlie Hall in the last part of the film is non-stop laughs, and one of their funniest sequences. That, and plenty of other laughs in the rest of the film, make "Them Thar Hills" one of the best-remembered Laurel & Hardy short features.
