Storyline

Two men running a carnival airplane ride are hired to fly to retrieve what they think are photos for a reporter. Actually, they are retrieving diamonds stolen from a noted gem dealer. As it turns out, their plane crashes on the very estate of the dealer. Thinking the duo are police officers, the dealer offers his home for their convalescence from the accident. Meanwhile, the diamonds have been snatched by a kleptomaniac dog and buried on the estate. When the smugglers track down the pair, they try to convince the dealer that they are officials from an institution from which the two have escaped. Before long, the carnival fellows, the crooks, the gem dealer and his family, along with a platoon of cops, are tearing up the grounds to find where the dog has buried the diamonds. Written by D.K. Sullivan

sad finale
11 July 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I have long been a fan of this pair.More for the characters than the actual humour.After all the jokes are rarely funny now.I have only just seen this final film of theirs,and i have to say that this is a sad finale to a double act which i have much enjoyed.I think that RKO must have had their doubts because they have cast Lupe Velez,presumably to bolster the laughs.Unfortunately it does not work.She is on one level the boys on another.This film even manages to make the great Margaret Dumont seem unfunny.Also i have to say that poor Robert Woolsey seems to be quite strained,if you look at his face.Sadly,it isn't funny and is a poor epitaph.
