L+H IN Sons of the Desert

Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are members of a fraternal lodge that will be holding its annual convention in Chicago. After taking an oath to attend, Oliver finds his wife will not let him go, so he feigns illness. Stan arranges for a doctor (actually a veterinarian) to prescribe an ocean voyage to Honolulu, with their wives staying home. Stan and Ollie go to the convention, with their wives none the wiser. Unfortunately the boat from Honolulu sinks in a typhoon, and Stan and Ollie have to explain how they got back a day early. However, the wives already know that they have been deceived by their husbands (they've seen a newsreel of the convention) and are playing along only to test the character of their spouses. Stan eventually breaks down and tearfully confesses, despite Oliver threatening to tell his (Stan's) wife that Stan smoked a cigarette. Stan tells his wife about the smoking too, and (for his honesty) ends up wrapped in her dressing gown on the couch, sipping wine and eating chocolates, whilst Oliver's wife breaks all the crockery... over his head!
