"Tagline: This is that movie about those people. "

-- Synopsis:
    Laurel and Hardy portray inept drifters and traveling around calling themselves " The Two-man Laurel and Hardy Zoot Suit Band" and find themselves fronting a scam for "gasolene pills" that change water into gasolene in wartime oil-short America. Some swing and other dancing thru-out the film. Laurel dresses in drag in this film as well as dances Jitterbug with Hardy.

* Features:
    Not a lot of dancing in this film but the 'Jivin' Jacks and Jills' do some average Jitterbug dancing in the East Coast swing style.  If you a Laurel and Hardy fan, or have an interest in dance history, dvd collection, then this film is a good purchase and a fun movie ... but if your interested in just the dancing, I'd pass.
