Storyline

Two friends are out west looking for an heiress to whom they have a deed to deliver. A saloon-keeper, to whom the heiress is a damsel-in-distress and kept in bondage, gets his wife to pose as the heiress, and the two duped dopes hand her the inheritance papers. After discovering their mistake, they spend the rest of the film trying to retrieve the papers from the wife. Yes, it's a direct swipe from Laurel and Hardy's "Out West."

Max and Max do Laurel and Hardy...badly.

What we have here is a direct swipe from Laurel and Hardy's "Out West" in which Baer and Rosenbloom are two buddies out west who have been sent to deliver some inheritance papers to a heiress they have never seen. The heiress is mopping the floors and other lackey jobs in a saloon. The saloon-keeper has his wife pose as "Little Nell" and the two dupes hand the papers over to her. They discover their mistake and spend the last reel of this two-reeler trying to recover the deed from the imposter's bodice. What appears to be a case of grand larceny (a purloined plot) turns to petty theft here. The M-G-M lawyers missed their chance to get Columbia in 1952, and again in 1960 when Columbia re-released this short.
