During Prohibition, Ollie persuades henpecked pal Stan to trick his wife and sneak away from an evening of calm domesticity in favor of forbidden drinking with fellow revelers at a nightclub. The icy, regal countenance of beautiful Anita Garvin provides the penultimate matrimonial opponent. She recalled, “I love the scene with Stan and Babe laughing. I never get tired of watching those two laugh like that…it’s contagious…one of the greatest ever. ” A huge commercial success in its initial theatrical run, M-G-M re-released BLOTTO in 1937, with Roach adding a delightful and improved incidental music score. This is the version that survives today. Directed by James Parrott.
