The Hoose-Gow

Trivia: The prison in this film is the same one that was used in a previous Laurel and Hardy short, "The Second Hundred Years" (1927).

Trivia: When Stan and Oliver are working with the road gang, Stan nicks Oliver in the rear with his pickaxe. The pickaxe that Stan Laurel was using was a real one and Oliver Hardy received a nasty cut to his rear.

Continuity mistake: When Stan and Oliver are fighting outside the prison, Oliver kicks the warden in the backside who then turns around. You can see that there is a guard behind the warden when he turns around, but when we see the warden in the next shot, the guard has disappeared.
