Stan and Ollie stowaway to Scotland expecting to inherit the MacLaurel estate. However Stan's inheritance amounts to a set of bagpipes and a snuff box. The boys are tricked into enlisting in the army and are posted to India where the heiress to the MacLaurel estate has moved to be near her guardian. Her Scottish sweetheart Allan also enlists. The boys are "volunteered" by the Sergeant (Finlayson) to impersonate officers at the palace of Mir Jutra and foil a plot to murder the officers by overturning several beehives. Written by

Barry Norton was the original juvenile lead, but according to William Janney, who replaced him, Norton's professionalism was his undoing. He knew his lines and cues perfectly, but when Laurel & Hardy began ad-libbing, Norton fell apart and couldn't keep up. Janney was brought in, and most of the scenes were re-written to keep Janney from falling into the same trap as Norton. Janney and "the boys" ultimately shared very few scenes. See more »

Another hilarious trip with Laurel and Hardy-this time to Scotland!
This time, Laurel and Hardy are off to Scotland to collect an inheritance from Laurel's uncle Angus Ian McLaurel. This is one of their more elaborate features, as they proceed to joining the Indian Army and fighting off the Arabs who are invading the country. Directed by perennial L&H director, James Horne. Great score, culminating Scottish folk tunes and the usual classic score by Marvin Hatley.
