Laurel & Hardy - The Flying Deuces U

£3.99

Product description

In their first starring feature away from the Hal Roach studios, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy play a couple of fish peddlers from Des Moines on a cook's tour of Paris. While stopping over at a quaint inn, Ollie falls in love with the innkeeper's daughter, Georgette (Jean Parker). At Stan's prodding, Ollie pops the question to Georgette, who gently refuses because there is someone else. Disconsolately, Ollie decides to commit suicide by jumping into the Seine, insisting that Stan join him in his plunge to oblivion. Our heroes are halted from this drastic action by the timely arrival of Francois (Reginald Gardiner), an officer in the French Foreign Legion. Francois convinces Stan and Ollie that they'll forget all about Ollie's lost love if they join the Legion, and within a few days our heroes are in uniform at an outpost in French Morocco. Alas, try as he might, Ollie cannot forget his beloved Georgette. After fleeing from the Legion, Ollie is reunited with Georgette, who turns out to be the wife of their commanding officer Francois! Sentenced to death for desertion, the boys tunnel their way out of their jail cell and hide out in an aeroplane, which Stan accidentally sends into flight. After a wild and noisy ride, the plane crashes, leading to the film's hilarious, and somehow touching, ""freak"" ending.
