Sons of the Desert (1933)



Reviews and Comments

Sons of the Desert is classic Laurel and Hardy, in more than one sense. The story stems from the material they do best, and it's one of their best reworkings of the formula. The premise, as usual, is just a framework to allow Laurel and Hardy to work their brand of comedy. They come up with a scheme to attend a convention by tricking their wives into thinking they're taking a medicinal cruise. There are numerous narrow escapes, of course, and the boys have to resort to hilarious measures to keep the charade going.
