Trivia:
Contrary to common belief, the long staircase in this film is NOT the same one used in Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's Oscar-winning short, The Music Box (1932). It is, however, in the same Silver Lake district of Los Angeles, about two miles away.See more »

Possibly their funniest short., 13 July 1999
Author: thom-29 from Redding, CA

This short begins hilariously, and builds to the riotous ending. It contains several well-known scenes, including the "ice-block down the stairs" piece, and Curly shaving the ice with great patter included. These stairs were also used in a wonderful Laurel and Hardy short involving a piano, and, as usual, Vernon Dent is hilarious as a pompous judge.
