Ladrones (1930)

** (out of 4)

Spanish version of Night Owls has the exact same story, although there's an added third reel, which is a different ending. Like other Spanish versions, the alternate ending here is actually a lot funnier than the American one so you've gotta wonder why it was cut. Some of the physical gags also work better here but it's still not one of the duo's best.

Night Owls (1930)

** (out of 4)

A policeman is on the down and outs with the captain so he has L&H to pretend to be robbers so that he can arrest them. The boys think the policeman will then get them off the hook but breaking into a house is harder than they thought. This is a pretty lifeless short with only a few chuckles and mostly dead jokes. The scene where the boys pretend to be cats is certainly the highlight.
