Quite possibly Laurel & Hardy's most well known feature, starring the hapless duo as their usual selves, travelling to the small town of Brushwood Gulch to deliver a gold mine deed to a young woman, only to fall foul of an unscrupulous bar owner and his gold digging wife.

The film features two of Laurel & Hardy's better known musical routines and the slapstick humour is brilliantly timed.

Worth watching, even if you're not a huge fan of the comedy partners.
