Summary
  • The big noise: The duo play janitors accidentally hired as sleuths to protect a new super-bomb destined for the War Department in Washington, DC. Through a series of misadventures, our heroes end up in a remote-controlled airplane with the bomb and headed straight for trouble
  • Great guns: Laurel and Hardy play a chauffeur and a gardener whose hypochondriac employer, a wealthy young man with little experience, is drafted. Convinced that he needs them in order to survive in the service, they join up as well. The Texas cavalry post to which they're all assigned is made far worse for the wear by the presence of these well-meaning troublemakers
  • Jitterbugs: The duo are a traveling two-man jitterbug band who operate out of a dilapidated jalopy and form an unlikely partnership with a likable con man. When the trio joins a carnival, they meet Susan, a naive young singer, whose mother has been swindled by grifters
