The plane that does all the fancy flying at the end of this movie is a 1928 Travel Air 6000, better known to some as a Curtis-Wright 6-B (Curtis-Wright acquired the Travel Air company in 1931). It is an American plane, despite being painted in this movie with French roundels on the wings. See more »

Stanley, a miracle has happened. I've completely forgotten.
You mean you've forgotten Georgette?

Oliver is in love with Georgette (Jean Parker), but his heart breaks when he finds out that Georgette has someone other.That other is Francois (Reginald Gardiner), who is Georgette's husband.So Stanley and Oliver join the Foreign Legion to forget Georgette.There is also Francois at the Foreign Legion.The boys have many adventures there, like going to jail and escaping from there.And it is hilarious to watch the boys flying an airplane at the end.The Flying Deuces from 1939 is a very funny Laurel and Hardy comedy and I'm sure it's not a disappointment for any Laurel and Hardy fans.
