Storyline

The owner of an American bean cannery and his wife are expecting the arrival of two orphans from war-torn England, but the "youngsters" arrive and are two addled-brain adults, Albert (Harry Langdon) and Alfred Prattle (Charles Rogers). Making a worse deal out of a bad one, the owner puts them to work in his cannery where, among other mishaps, they manage to place a $100,000 gem in a can of beans. The word gets out and customers, hoping to buy the can with the gem, clear the market place of the company's beans. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Fast Burlesque Humor

This is a surprisingly funny programmer from Monogram.

Somehow, a bean manufacturer under pressure (ahem!) from the Beans Syndicate to gouge the US Government in war contracts accepts a bundle from Britain of two little girls, who turn out to be Harry Langdon and Charley Rogers. Of course, it could happen to anyone. Somehow, also, a priceless diamond gets put into a can of beans, and the fellows must get them back, by disguising themselves as women.

The two comics play off each other beautifully, Rogers, in a rare lead, talking a mile a minute and Langdon his usual bemused self. Despite their differing comedic styles -- sort of like the pairing of Durante and Keaton in their comedies of the early 1930s -- the two of them manage to produce an air of camaraderie.
