Story line - Stan and Ollie are Christmas tree salesmen in California. Business is slow and a simple argument with one grumpy prospective customer (James Finlayson) escalates from a simple argument into full scale mutual destruction - with Stan and Ollie destroying the customer's house and garden, whilst Finlayson reduces their car to scrap metal... all under the disbelieving gaze of a police officer and an assembled crowd. —Steve Smith
