A band of Gypsies are camped outside the walls of Count Arnheim's palace. Oliver's wife kidnaps the Count's daughter Arline, then leaves the child and runs off with her lover, Devilshoof. Not knowing her true identity, Oliver, with the help of "Uncle" Stanley, raises the girl as his own. Years later, Arline, still unaware of her noble birth, is caught trespassing on the Count's grounds and is thrown into the dungeon. Meanwhile, Stanley and Oliver pass the time playing "fingers" and bumblingly ply their trade picking pockets. Finally, just when Oliver needs his help to rescue Arline, Stanley gets drunk while siphoning wine into bottles. Written by Paul Penna <>

This was Thelma Todd's last screen appearance before her controversial death. In an attempt to avoid associating the film with the notoriety surrounding the event, the plot was altered and many of her already-filmed scenes were re-shot. See more »

Good Movie, underrated
28 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie on AMC when I was a kid, and found it long and dull compared to Way Out West and Swiss Miss. Seeing it again many years later I found it a very enchanting and funny movie. The only thing keeping this from being and incredibly good drama is Stan and Ollie's wonderful presence. The story and music are wonderful and provide an interesting undertone to the movie. The silliness though brought forth by L&H throughout makes this absolutely delightful. Watch Stan get progressively intoxicated, some great marital spats, and the duo's inept pickpocketing throughout the village (slowly, slowly slowly...shut!) A great family film that everyone can enjoy
