Clancy (Charles Murray) and MacIntosh (Lucien Littletfield) are a pair of stock comedy Irish and Scottish plumbers who have been partners for twenty years; but when Clancy accidentally buys some shares on margin, MacIntosh's Scotch thrift rebels and their partnership breaks up. In the meantime, their children are in love....
Murray and Littlefield had been playing these characters for twenty years, and they are expert and amusing in doing so, particularly when high-hatting each other. The camera-work is also quite mobile for 1930, but the soundtrack is hissy and this sort of comedy characterization would vanish shortly. For the moment, though, it was still a popular comedy genre and it's a pleasure to watch these two old pros at work,
