Our April gathering features one of Stan and Ollie's greatest challenges: How to sneak off to a convention without their wives finding out! First, we have another classic cartoon. Then one of their funniest shorts COME CLEAN (1931), the Hardys, hoping to avoid having the Laurels drop in and spoil their quiet evening, pretend not to be home when the couple inevitably call. But their subterfuge is discovered, and to make the best of it, Stanley and Oliver go out to buy ice cream. On the way, they spot Kate (Mae Busch), a woman wanted by the police, and she jumps in the river. They save her, only to have her blackmail them into caring for her, or else she'll claim they tried to push her in the river! Back home, troubles ensue when the boys try to keep their wives from learning what they've brought home instead of ice cream. Next, our guest comedian in HASTY MARRIAGE (1931), unemployed Charlie Chase is in love with a streetcar conductor's daughter (Gay Seabrook), but her mother prefers a security officer with the streetcar line for son-in-law material. Hilarious goings-on on the streetcar, driven by the girlfriend's father (James Finlayson), will follow. Will the couple commit a Hasty Marriage? After an Intermission of tasty treats, we are showing THE SONS OF THE DESERT (1933), the film that became the name of our organization. When Stan and Ollie trick their wives into thinking that they are taking a medicinal cruise while they're actually going to a convention, the wives find out the truth the hard (and hilarious) way. A fine evening of comic calamities is guaranteed for all. And make sure you tell your wives and hubbies to join you!
