Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are thrown into a cell to await execution at sunrise. Stan discovers that he can strum his bed springs and play it like a harp. The music he plays is "The World is Waiting for the Sunrise".
On the set of this film, Oliver Hardy met his future wife, script supervisor [?] Virginia Lucille Jones.
The movie is at least a partial remake of Laurel & Hardy's four-reel comedy Beau Hunks. Charles Middleton plays a hostile camp commandant in both movies.
