A solid full-length work by Laurel and Hardy that just may be a tad too sophisticated for their audience at the time. It still works, mainly due to an excellent supporting cast and the hilarity of seeing Stan pretend he's drunk, trying to siphon wine into bottles.

A reworking of the famous operetta for Laurel & Hardy, with some of the music intact (including "I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls").

Laurel and Hardy play two gipsies who end up having to raise the child of a prince who was kidnapped by the evil wife of one of them. Though the film has its flaws in pacing and narrative, it has some of the blackest gags and darkest humor the duo ever exhibited in their films.

A good laugh, especially Stan bottling the wine, that's a classic scene.

Looks suspiciously like Hal Roach trying to high-culture up a duo (and a studio unit) who were doing perfectly well scratching around in the gutter... The momentum of their best work gets broken up by musical interludes that range from the not bad (whoever Todd was lip-synching to) to the undistinguished to the entirely cringeworthy. A few good flickers - the cross-eyed bartender, Stan's changeable singing voice and haphazard approach to home brewing (the highlight, because it leaves the camera running on one of the stars, and has nothing very much to do with the plot) - and it's undeniably cute watching Ollie interacting with the child star in the title role. Yet it's precisely this push for overt, "respectable" emotional pay-offs that sets you in mind of those later Marx Brothers comedies the studio felt needed tarting up with witless romantic leads and bloody awful songs. An inorganic confection, to say the least.

Beautiful film, sporadically funny.

Not my favourite Laurel & Hardy film but still a classic. It's the best sort of comedy because anyone can laugh at it. Unlike things like stand up you don#t need to understand everything to find it funny. Every little gesture these two do is hilarious.

As usual there is a great cast of characters. Sme faces you will recognise if yu have watched L & H episodes in the past. this is a great comedic film and is worth watching for basically anybody.

A very nice, rather unknown feature film of Laurel & Hardy. The duo made three comic operas, merging music with comedy. It works quite well in this feature, although nobody will watch the movie for the music, but for the comic genius of Laurel & Hardy. They play good-hearted but empty-pursed gypsies, which is a great vehicle for their comedy.
