Storyline

The boys' Army buddy, Eddie Smith, is killed in the trenches in France, leaving his baby girl an orphan. Back home after Armistice, they try to find Eddie's father and turn the child over to him. Unfortunately, they keep coming up with the wrong Smiths, and in the process disrupt a wedding by proclaiming the baby to be the groom's child. To evade the Welfare Association, they try to skip town, raising money for their escape by hocking their lunch wagon. But they accidentally knock the bank president unconscious and wind up being hunted down for bank robbery. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Did You Know?

Trivia

Stan Laurel once remarked that Richard Cramer, seen here as the abusive foster father, had absolutely no sense of humor, and played everything straight. Stan used him when he needed a serious character who wouldn't try to get a laugh. See more »

Goofs

Whilst in the apartment, Stan looks at a newspaper article referencing the Empire State Building in New York. The Empire State Building wasn't built until 1931, but Stan and Ollie supposedly had just returned from the Great War, meaning the year should have been 1917 or 1918 and the Empire State Building was not yet built.

The cutes little girl on film
18 July 2002 | by whitecat1217See all my reviews

This is the cutes little girl's role ever made since Shirley Temple. When she was sitting in the lap of a very sleepy Stanley, she decided to read "The 3 Bears" to him. Her adorable accent alone was precious.
