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

13 minutes of additional scenes by themselves make the movie worth watching.
22 September 2004 | by SilentStreamerSee all my reviews

This Film is the Spanish equivalent of the Laurel and Hardy classic BLOTTO. In addition to the scene by scene duplication of its English counterpart, this Spanish version contains roughly 13 minutes of additional material - a brief comedy act, a Mexican dancer, and the show stopper, a willowy Eastern belly dancer !! These additional scenes by themselves make the movie worth watching. One must conclude that Producer Hal Roach and his production staff felt that 1930 Hispanic audiences had lower sensitivities to this sort of provocative display of sexuality.

Of particular interest to film buffs would be the viewing of the beautiful Linda Loredo whose acting career was cut short by an appendicitis attack from which she did not recover
