A Whale of a Time
The boys are whaling fisherman in this one although all the action takes place on dry land. I'm probably wrong, but for the life of me I can't think of one film in which we see the two in active duty on board a ship even though the duo appeared as sailors in quite a number of pictures. They decide to board in a rundown lodging house run by a heavy-browed thug who is forcing a helpless young girl to marry him. Naturally, the boys are having none of it and help the girl to escape from her landlord's clutches. All this is really a build-up to the film's set piece: a boxing match between poor Stan and the landlord. I promise you'll never see a funnier fight than this one: for a start the landlord is twice the size of Stan.

Interestingly, the boys use one sequence in this film which they would use again in Way Out West when the landlord chases them for a key which they throw back and forth to each other in their attempts to avoid him.

The second half of this film is much funnier than the first, but it still delivers pretty solid laughs throughout…
