Comedy is of early Keystone vintage with squirting water and bumps into walls used extensively to create laughs. Overall, it’s pretty dull.

Laurel and Hardy are Paris sightseers, latter falling in love with a waitress. She turns him down, and pair enlist in the Foreign Legion. Breaking all regulations, they are tossed to the laundry, and finally rebel and try to desert.

Not much enthusiasm displayed for the comedy attempted, with exception of two brief episodes. Hardy sings chorus of ‘Shine On Harvest Moon’ while Laurel does some light stepping. Later, Laurel’s utilization of bed springs to play a harp solo is the picture’s highlight.

Boris Morros bought the rights to a French picture, The Two Aces, but in the remake dropped the picture down to the bottom of the deck with the new title.
