After the events in Them Thar Hills (1934), Stan and Ollie encounter their old nemesis whose grocery shop is next to their home appliances store. Unable to let bygones be bygones, a war breaks out. Will those tit-for-tat battles ever end?
Stan & Ollie have set up their own electrical repair store. Unfortunately, for them, the grocery store opposite is run by the man & wife they encountered with in Them Thar Hills (1935). Stan & Ollie go and visit, to offer the hand of friendship, but the grocer soon becomes convinced that Ollie is trying to seduce his wife. The grocer takes his revenge first upon Stan & Ollie and then upon the goods in their shop, with the duo carrying out similar attacks on the grocer and his property.Written by
A LAUREL & HARDY Comedy Short. The Boys are opening a new electrical supply store and are surprised to learn that the grocery next door is owned by the same bickering couple they met disastrously in THEM THAR HILLS. Mr. Hall quickly impugns Ollie's honor & the resulting TIT FOR TAT struggle, in which they wreck havoc on each other's person & property, quickly reaches donnybrook proportions...
A hilarious film, one of Stan & Ollie's best. The battle royal with the grocer is long & very satisfying. Notice the running gag of the little fellow robbing the Boys blind. Charley Hall & Mae Busch play the neighbors.
