|Laurel & Hardy in probably their finest, most accomplished film are members of a fraternal organization known as the Sons of the Desert. Their presences are requested at a convention in Chicago as part of an annual get-together but when Mrs. Hardy hears about this she flatly refuses to let Ollie go. This leads to the boys conjuring up a make believe illness which would require them to go to Hawaii on account of Ollie's health, but this is or course a subterfuge to throw the wives off the track. Simply in a word, brilliant.|
The basic story of this movie is a re-working of an earlier silent short We Faw Down (1928).
