Them Thar Hills


Laurel and Hardy Two-reeler. Ollie has gout. Well, serves you right, you bonehead, for eating all that rich food! says Dr. Billie Gilbert. He advises a rest cure in the mountains, drinking plenty of water. What they don’t know as they pull up in their ‘30s RV (a box like a large packing crate on wheels) is that a bunch of moonshiners have dumped their hooch in the well. They get jolly drunk and are joined by their standard nemesis, a short, choleric, mean-spirited little man. Soon they are engaged in a very good “Tit for Tat” battle. A really great one. Ollie was one of the all-time great laughers.
