Two homeless vagabonds hide out in a vacant mansion and pose as the residents when prospective lessees arrive and try to rent it.
Despite this picture's title, Oliver Hardy (I)'s signature line was always "another nice mess". There were other variations, but "fine mess" wasn't one of them.
Come on! Let's reconoiter.
Lady Plumtree refers to her husband variously as "Leopold," "Ambrose," and "Leopold Ambrose" due to two different versions of the script.
The original UK VHS edition of this film (released on the Virgin/VVL label in 1991) omits 16 seconds in the scene where Hardy is looking for his billiard room. He opens the door and escorts Plumtree into a room and says "Now what did I do with that billiard room?" The scene runs from 18:32-18:48 on the UK DVD. The scene is restored in its entirety in the DVD edition.
