A LAUREL & HARDY Comedy Short. A cop finds himself in trouble for not making any arrests during a robbery spree. So, he talks vagrants Stan & Ollie into breaking into the Chief's home, where he can then arrest them. Like a couple of NIGHT OWLS, the Boys descend upon the house. Chaos erupts during their attempt to scale the wall & get through a window. But matters only get worse when they finally get inside...
A good little comedy, filled with hardy slapstick. Edgar Kennedy plays the cop; that's James Finlayson as the Chief's butler.
Strangely, there have been far too many break-ins on Officer Kennedy's watch--to be more precise, forty-two burglaries in one week, and still no arrests. Facing redundancy, the ineffective policeman stumbles upon the unsuspecting vagabonds, Laurel and Hardy--and without much thought--he will approach them with a preposterous proposition; one that would get him off the hook. To avoid ninety long days of incarceration, the boys will even try breaking and entering; however, are they up to the task?
