Storyline

In this Spanish-language version of "Blotto" bachelor Oliver wants henpecked Stan to go out with him to a Prohibition-era nightclub, so they plan a ruse to get him out of the house. The fiery Mrs. Laurel overhears their plans and replaces the contents of Stan's hidden bottle of liquor with tea and spices. While the boys are at the club enjoying the dancers and the speakeasy-type atmosphere, they imbibe the concoction with seltzer water. The power of suggestion causes them to act like sloppy drunks, but the sight of a hot-tempered Mrs. Laurel with a shotgun quickly sobers them up. Written by duke1029@aol.com

I Beg To Differ
12 November 2014 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

My main purpose in reviewing this short film of Laurel & Hardy is in response to another review posted here titled 'For Spanish Speakers And Laurel & Hardy Completists Only!' In this, the reviewer makes some rather startling comments on the three nightclub acts included in this Spanish-language version. All three performers serve to enrich the action more than I can express! The Mexican dancer with her grace and agility, the exotic 'belly dancer' with her sinuous moves to some spellbinding music, and above all the clumsy Isadora Duncan wannabe who is a COMEDIENNE! The reviewer seems to think she is simply a very bad performer... questions the sanity of those who hired her... wonders at her lack of ability. Well, that is the idea! Her act is pure buffoonery and I do not exaggerate when I say that I have to watch it DAILY since discovering the film on you-tube. Laughter is medicine, and she is hilarious! Wish I knew who this forgotten lady is. So having said my piece, I will conclude with highest praise for the boys in any language, but 'La Vida Nocturna' is even better than the original 'Blotto' in my humble opinion!
