Swiss Miss

1938

John G. Blystone
Director

The 10th full-length feature from Laurel & Hardy is not one of their best. The boys find themselves in Switzerland trying to sell mouse-traps, when they encounter a singer and his annoying wife, whom they befriend in some fashion. But not before they have had a run-in with the local restaurant through not being able to pay their dinner bill.
As with all of their films there are memorable scenes: transporting a piano across a weak wooden-slacked bridge high up in the mountains whilst being pursued by a gorilla; drilling holes in some poor cheese-makers' floor to entice mice to the cheeese; and of course Stan's morally wrong coaxing of a St. Bernard dog out of its brandy by faking a snow storm using feathers.

Followed by Block-Heads (1938).
