Movie Info

It's a rainy night and Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are faced with a particularly ill-tempered judge Rychard Cramer. He'd love to throw them in the clink for vagrancy, but since the jail is full, he gives them just one hour...to leave town. Out on the street, they encounter a drunk (perennial screen inebriate Arthur Housman) who has lost his car keys. He finds them with Stan and Ollie's help, and out of gratitude invites them to spend the night at his house. Once there, the drunk discovers that he has apparently forgotten his house keys. The three of them manage to get in anyway -- the only problem is that it's the wrong house! The drunk has just poured his bootleg gin into a water pitcher when a butler tells him to leave. This wakes up the lady of the house (Vivian Oakland). She's glad the man is gone -- her husband, who isn't home yet, abhors drunks. Stan and Ollie are still around, however, making themselves comfortable and completely unaware of the mix up. Dressed in the husband's silk pajamas and robes, they encounter the wife in the hallway and she faints dead away. To revive her they give her a glass of "water" from the pitcher containing the bootleg gin. This brings her back to consciousness -- and then some! The boys are having a time keeping her antics under control but finally they just relax. The three of them are laughing it up and having a grand old time when her husband finally comes home. It's the judge and he slowly approaches Laurel and Hardy, the menace on his face a frightening sight. Stan goes for the light switch and the screen goes dark. The soundtrack, however, gives a cacophonous idea of the mayhem that is being wreaked.
