When Ollie and Stan park their trailer in the hills and decide to have beans and coffee for dinner, Ollie sets up a table and spreads a tablecloth. The cloth is checkered with a wide lighter-colored stripe on two edges. Ollie spreads the cloth with the lighter-colored edges on the end of the table toward the camera. Once their lady visitor arrives, the stripes at the ends of the table aren't seen any more, only the checkered pattern. See more »
Why don't we get one of those trailers to hook on the back of your car. Much better than sleeping in a tent. The flies wouldn't bother us...
Can you take one of those things into the mountains?
Sure, right up in the high multitude. What do you think?
We can't afford to buy one of those trailers.
We don't have to buy one, we could rent one. I know a fellow who's got one for rent and we could get it for next to nothing. I'll bet if we pay cash we get it less than that.

Them Thar Hills, the story of Mr. Hardy needing good mountain climate, Mr. Laurel agreeing, and together they set out "for the mountains" with a small camper behind them, and the radiator overflowing. Being told to drink plenty of Mountain Water, they do so when they find a place with a well they drink as much water as possible; only what they don't know is that moonshiners dumped their liquor into the well. So, slowly, the boys become drunk, and when Mae Bush and Charlie Hall come to ask for gas, Mae becomes drunk as well; resulting in one of their funniest tit-for-tat sequences. The film has many of these hilarious moments, for instance, when Stan tries to carry Ollie, but through a little mishap, winds up dumping himself and Ollie in the bathtub! Also, while cooking and making everything ready for lunch, Ollie hums "The Old Spinning Wheel," and after a while, Stan gives in a good "Pum-Pum." This results in Ollie's hitting him over the head, saying, "I'm singing this song!"
This is an excellent Laurel & Hardy short subject, one that is a must-see for every Laurel & Hardy Fan. What is also exciting, is that apart from being a good film, this short will be celebrating its 70th anniversary on July 21, its initial release into theatres and the world in 1934.
