A collection of classic Laurel and Hardy shorts - and a foreign-language feature - set amid the snow! In The Fixer-Uppers, greeting-card salesmen Stan and Ollie agree to help a woman whose husband has been neglecting her. To arouse the husband's jealousy, Ollie poses as her lover - and is challenged to a duel! Also included is Slipping Wives, an early, pre-teaming appearance on which The Fixer-Uppers was based. In Laughing Gravy, Stan and Ollie defy their landlord by keeping a small dog in their lodgings, and have to brave the elements when their pet is thrown out. This compilation includes the original two-reel version, as released in 1931, alongside extended material incorporating a rediscovered third reel. This longer version is also featured in Les Carottiers, a French-language edition - with Laurel and Hardy speaking their own dialogue - that combines Laughing Gravy with another L&H film of the period, Be Big.
