Following in the footsteps of their earlier short “Beau Hunks,” the boys get into another nice mess when Ollie’s heart is broken by a Paris innkeeper’s daughter. To forget her, he and Stan join the French Foreign Legion, where the two tackle a mountain of dirty laundry, soft-shoe through “Shine On, Harvest Moon” and commandeer an airplane. Among Laurel and Hardy’s most enjoyable features, and now fully restored from 35mm elements.

1936, Universal, 73 min, Dir: A. Edward Sutherland

Snake-oil salesman Eustace McGargle (the riotous W.C. Fields) is a con artist who must always stay two steps ahead of the local sheriff, which is particularly difficult given Eustace's undying devotion to his daughter, Poppy (Rochelle Hudson).
