Mugsy chases Stan and and Ollie around a long table to get a key back. Stan jumps onto an end chair and runs along the table followed by Mugsy but when he get to the centre Ollie pulls the extension out at his end causing Mugsy to fall through the gap. As he does so he clearly breaks a section of the table. Stan and Ollie push the extensions back in place trapping Mugsy by the neck and there's no sign of any damage to the table. In a long shot from the side there's also no sign of any broken pieces from the table. See more »
"Any Old Port" features Stan and Ollie in dire need of some funds after their fishing business is making a financial loss. After incurring the wrath of Walter Long by sabotaging an arranged marriage, the boys make a hasty exit. Later on, an old friend of Hardy invites Stan to become a boxer so he and Ollie can make some money. The boxing scene is by far the best in his comedy short but "Any Old Port" is still a good one.
