Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey vie for a fictional kingdom's crown in the political satire "Cracked Nuts" (1931); Boris Karloff, Edna Mae Oliver co-star. Bert and Bob are stranded vaudevillians who help a kind widow rescue her failing drugstore in "Caught Plastered" (1931). Framed and sent to prison, W&W are unwilling recruits for the warden's football team in "Hold 'Em Jail" (1932). The boys are cosmetics salesmen sent on the run when they mistakenly swap their wares for missing securities in "Hips, Hips, Hooray!" (1934). Thelma Todd co-stars. Cigar stand operators Bert and Bob are on the suspect list when their landlord turns up dead in "The Nitwits" (1935), with Betty Grable. An archeologist charges W&W with returning artifacts to a tomb before a curse takes hold in "Mummy's Boys" (1936). And the team's final vehicle, "High Flyers" (1937), casts them as carny pilots conned into aiding a diamond-smuggling scheme. Lupe Velez co-stars. Four-disc set also includes "Half Shot at Sunrise" and "Hook, Line and Sinker" (1930). 10 1/2 hrs. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
