Way Out West (1937)

In this Laurel and Hardy western comedy directed by James W. Horne:

  • the scene of Stan and Oliver's discussion about the deed to the gold mine - delivered to the wrong woman: ("That's the first mistake we've made since that guy sold us the Brooklyn Bridge")
  • their soft-shoe dance routine of "At the Ball, That's All" while outside the Mickey Finn Palace Saloon
  • the scene of Stan being wrestled and tickled for the gold mine deed - reduced to helpless laughter
  • Stan biting - chewing - and gulping pieces of his hat after losing a bet ("now you're taking me illiterally")
  • the rope-pulley sequences with Ollie and then a mule (and Ollie on the other end) to try to retrieve the deed
