Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy have come to Scotland to collect Stan's inheritance, only to be left with a bagpipe, some sniffing tobacco and no money - and then Ollie loses his pants. Trying to get a new pair of pants for Ollie, the boys mistakenly join the Scottish army - ironically probably the only army worldwide that doesn't wear pants but kilts.

Before long, Ollie and Stan are stationed in India, where they make a mess out of everything before being sent on a suicide mission to a certain Indian badman (Maurice Black) - but in the finale, after Stan misses himself trying to commit suicide, he and Ollie defeat both the gang of the Indian badman and the Scottish army (accidently) by throwing beehives).

There is also a romantic subplot somewhere in there where an incredibly wealthy cousin (June Lang) of Stan is madly in love with Alan (William Janney), a lawyer's assistant, but Lady Violet (Anne Grey) sees to it that she becomes the ward of her brother (Vernon Steele), who's stationed in India, so she will eventually marry him. Allan though goes after the love of his life ...


This film shows Laurel and Hardy at their best: All of their routines are priceless in this one, their chemistry and comic timing is phenomenal, and some setpieces (like Stan, desperately trying to keep in step with his fellow soldiers, eventually changes the step of his entire regiment) are among the best American comedy as such has to offer.

Interestingly, this film has quite a few detractors, complainiing that the film is badly written and the romantic subplot is never properly resolved - but while this is true to a degree, these complaints are also absolute rubbish, because if the romantic subplot would have gotten any more room, it would have completely destroyed the perfect pacing of the film, and if Laurel and Hardy were caught in a more elaborate narrative, this would have seriously hampered their style of comedy.

So let me repeat, Laurel and Hardy at their best!

Highest recommendation!
