Our Score
Even the staunchest Laurel and Hardy fan won't eulogise this middling outing, in which their failed mousetrap salesmen become involved with a composer and his opera-singing wife. However, the film still contains a couple of classic sequences, most notably Stan's attempt to trick a St Bernard dog into letting him at its brandy keg and Ollie singing Let Me Call You Sweetheart to Stan's sousaphone accompaniment. There's even a surreal reprise of The Music Box " scenario, which culminates in them being chased over a rope bridge by a gorilla, and a charming gag involving a vast pipe organ and some bursting bubbles.
