In their final film, Laurel and Hardy inherit a yacht and end up shipwrecked in the Pacific! Accompanied by chef Antoine, a stateless man, and Giovanni, a stowaway, Stan and Ollie establish a tropical paradise using Daniel Defoe s Robinson Crusoe as their guide. Soon, Eden gets its Eve in the form of a vivacious French singer fleeing a failed romance, who brings an unwelcome note of temptation and competition into their little island fraternity.
The Flying Deuces
When a pretty Parisienne named Georgette declines his offer of marriage, American tourist Hardy decides to throw himself in the Seine-- a trip in which his pal isn t eager to join him. François suggests that the boys join the Foreign Legion so Ollie can forget, but life in the Legion is harder than they expected, especially when they learn that François is Georgette s husband! After trying to desert, they re condemned to face a firing squad, and their only hope of escape is a plane that neither of them knows how to fly!
Laurel & Hardy on Parade
In this selection, the twosome takes a cattle boat from America to lovely Scotland. The reason? Ollie wants to hear the reading of Stanley s grandfather s will. You will, too; because the boys get the grandfather s most valuable possessions and wind up in India, where they really clean up. Special fun: The Laurel & Hardy theme is played by a blacksmith on his anvil.
