The Hoose-Gow

Continuity mistake: When the warden kicks Stan into the bed of boiled rice that pours out of the governor's car radiator, Stan stands up and you can see he is standing in the bed of rice, but in the next shot he is standing next to the warden.

Revealing mistake: When the governor and warden reverse the car back into the paint truck at the end of the film, watch carefully and you can see the two barrels of whitewash tip over before the impact.

Continuity mistake: When Stan and Oliver run away from the prison, the warden opens the right door of the entrance. When he fires his gun, he is standing by the left door, and when Stan and Oliver return to prison in the next shot, the warden is back near the right door.

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.

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).
