Another Fine Mess
Sound Short - Released 29 November 1930
Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel are vagabonds being chased by the police. They hide in the cellar of the mansion of a Quatermain-esque adventurer, Col. Buckshot (Jimmy Finlayson) recently departed for an African Safari, and which is to be rented out until his return. The boys are surrounded by police, so to deceive the honeymooning couple renting the house, Oliver disguises himself as Buckshot and Stan disguises himself as both butler and chambermaid. During a girl-talk scene with Thelma Todd and Stan (disguised as the maid), Stanqzqs comments get sillier and sillier, nearly causing Thelma to break character with the giggles.
