1935, Warner Bros., 80 min, USA, Dir: James W. Horne

When Laurel learns an inheritance awaits him in Scotland, he and Hardy stow away on a boat to claim it. But there is no fortune awaiting Stan, so he and his friend enlist in the British Army, and are promptly shipped off to a dangerous mission in India (under the command of the redoubtable James Finlayson). Ollie’s epic confrontation with a snuff box will have you in stitches!

1937, Sonar Entertainment, 65 min, USA, Dir: James W. Horne

In what half of their fans consider their best feature, Stan and Ollie arrive in Brushwood Gulch to deliver the deed to a gold mine that was bequeathed to a prospector’s daughter. After being tricked out of it by nefarious saloon keeper Jimmie Finlayson (the man who taught Homer Simpson to say “D'oh!”), the two tenderheels must retrieve the deed and rescue the rightful heiress. Endlessly entertaining, with Rosina Lawrence, Sharon Lynne, Stanley Fields and the boys’ legendary soft-shoe to "At the Ball, That’s All" and duet of "Trail of the Lonesome Pine." Both Laurel and Hardy cited this film as their personal favorite.
