Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Sons of the Desert
Director: William A. Seitler
Cast: Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Charley Chase, Mae Busch, Dorothy Christy, Lucien Littlefield

This is the finest of Laurel and Hardy's feature length films. They play lodge members who pretend to go on a sea cruise to Hawaii in order to attend a meeting in Chicago. The plan backfires when their wives learn that the ship they were supposed to be on sinks in the Pacific. A winning mix of physical and verbal comedy.
