Stan and Ollie are charged with delivering the deed to a valuable gold mine to the daughter of a dead prospector. However they reckon without the machinations of her evil guardian Mickey Finn who is determined to have the gold mine for himself and his saloon singer wife Lola.Written by

HEAR 'EM SING! SEE 'EM DANCE! The boys are hoofing and crooning now...in their ga-ga saga of Brushwood Gulch! Sixty-five riotous minutes...as they hunt for gold-and find nothing but trouble! (Print Ad- Granby Leader-Mail, ((Granby, PQ)) 26 August 1937) See more »
The scene where Lola (Sharon Lynn) uses a small mirror to reflect a spotlight onto the audience had previously been done in the film The Show (1922), a Larry Semon short in which Ollie appeared. See more »
In the final scene, Ollie is holding the burro's harness just before the cut, but just after the cut, he's five feet away from the burro and performs his famous fall into a deep hole in the shallow water. See more »
[Finn pushes the $1 key on the cash register and .10 shows up, he opens the cash register case to examine it, and .10 appears when he presses the $1 key again]
Hey, this thing ain't workin' right.
It's working all right for me.
[Finn does a double take]

There is a persistent rumour that when the film was first released it included a scene (now lost) with Laurel and Hardy at a crossroads trying to read a direction sign which the wind keeps blowing into different positions. See more »

Way Out West With Stan & Ollie
Would you send Mister Laurel & Mister Hardy off to the wilds of the Old West to deliver an important inheritance document to a young lady they've never seen? Probably not. But that is the hinge upon which this whole wonderfully goofy movie swings.
As always, the Boys are a pure joy to watch, whether they are trying to bust into a saloon in the dead of night, scuffling with the bad guys for a valuable scrap of paper or breaking into a delightful soft-shoe dance.
James Finlayson is very funny once again as the Boys' nemesis. Sharon Lynn, in a hilarious scene, gets to tickle Stan silly.
At one point Ollie begins to sing 'On The Trail Of The Lonesome Pine' in his clear high tenor. He had a beautiful voice, warm & nostalgic. Just like the rest of this film, one of Laurel & Hardy's best.
