Stan Laurel was embarrassed by the final film and hoped it would get little publicity or release. Ironically, the movie's copyright lapsed and the film went into the public domain, making this the most easily obtainable of the films he made with Oliver Hardy. See more »

This film has the unfortunate distinction of being Laurel & Hardy's last film together. Though, it is true, you can see how ill Stan was and how age was ravishing both, it is NOT true that they had lost their charm. There are bits in this film that I found every bit as funny as those in the L&H heyday. Give it an honest try. I think you'll find this movie is unjustly maligned.
