A classic feature film - regarded by many critics as Laurel and Hardy's best - plus the silent short that inspired it, another attempt by Stan and Ollie to escape their wives, plus L&H returning a guest appearance with Charley Chase. In 'Sons of the Desert' Stan and Ollie attend the Chicago convention of their lodge but tell their wives they are going on an ocean voyage for the sake of Ollie's health - then discover that the ship has sunk! The silent short 'We Faw Down' anticipates this story, with Stan and Ollie claiming to have attended a stage show - unaware that the theatre has burned down. In 'Their Purple Moment' Stan and Ollie go out for an evening without their wives, only to discover that their money has been replaced with useless coupons. 'Sons of the Desert' includes a guest contribution from fellow-Roach comedian Charley Chase; 'On the Wrong Trek' sees L&H returning the compliment in one of Chase's own films.
