Synopsis

A collection of classic Laurel & Hardy shorts and films based around the maritime adventures of Stan and Ollie. Feature-length comedy Saps At Sea (Laurel & Hardy's last film for Hal Roach) sees Stan's trombone-playing aggravate Ollie's newly aquired allergy to the sound of horns! In The Live Ghost they help round up a reluctant crew for a 'Ghost Ship' and are shanghaied themselves! Any Old Port! sees Stan and Ollie returning from a whaling voyage to find their assistance required by a damsel in distress. Another imperilled damsel appears as Stan's girlfriend in the early, pre-teaming Why Girls Love Sailors. In one of the best-love L&H shorts Towed In A Hole, they buy a boat and fill it with water to detect the leaks!
