DIRECTOR: WILLIAM A. SEITER

CAST: STAN LAUREL, OLIVER HARDY, CHARLEY CHASE

Laurel and Hardy’s fourth feature and arguably the best one they ever made, Sons of the Desert finds Stan and Ollie conspiring to escape their wives and trek to Chicago for the 87th annual convention of their titular fraternal lodge, whose number includes the great silent comic Charley Chase as an atrocious boor. Sons of the Desert is screening with Berth Marks, the boys’ second sound short, which sets them loose on an unsuspecting passenger train.
