Before Chubby leaves the office, he is wearing a single-breasted jacket, but when he goes down to the car, it's a double-breasted jacket and Fluffy tears it up. Later, when the guys stop to eat, Chubby is wearing the single-breasted jacket again. See more »

Vaudeville partners Ole Olsen (as "J.D.") and Chic Johnson (as "Charlie") consider going straight. But, they stick together for a new money-making scheme. On the road, they pick up runaway Sammy McKim (as Billy Heath), and are jailed for kidnapping. But, the boy's mother is beautiful ex-silent screen co-star Lila Lee (as Louise), closing in on her retirement from the movies. Presently trying to manage a hotel, Ms. Lee vouches for the conning "Country Gentlemen", and gives them room at the inn. Far from great material for the cast, but you get to see them try. And, under-appreciated Joyce Compton (as Gertie) has a featured role.
*** Country Gentlemen (11/9/36) Ralph Staub ~ Ole Olsen, Chic Johnson, Joyce Compton, Lila Lee
