More about the Films

Dirty Work 

Stan and Ollie arrive at the home of Professor Noodle, played by Lucien Littlefield, working as a couple of Chimney Sweeps. The boys get to work and their usual antics ensue. Ollie is up on the roof while Stan remains beside the fireplace and it's safe to say they create quite a bit of a mess. Things get off to a bad start with the dry-witted Butler as the pair begin to destroy the home of the Mad Scientist. Whiles the Butler is otherwise occupied looking for an Electric Chair, the boys take part in a Scientific Experiment with some unusual side effects...

Sons of the Desert

Laurel and Hardy attend a meeting with the Sons of the Desert at the fraternal lodge in California. The boys take an oath to attend the upcoming convention in Chicago. However, their wives back home are not very accepting of the idea as Mrs Hardy has already organised a trip to the mountains. Ollie fabricates a nervous breakdown, allowing him to avoid the trip with his wife, under the false pretence that he’ll be going on an ocean voyage to Honolulu instead. The boys travel to Chicago for the convention, but will their wives have any idea of their trip?
