Translating as "Unfaithful" this looks very much like "Come Clean" (1931) in which Stan and Olly stop a lady who is trying to commit suicide by jumping in a river.
The fun starts when the boys take the lady home with them and hide her in the bedroom. The boy's wives become increasingly suspicious over their behaviour.
With Mae Busch as the suicide case, Gertrude Astor as Mrs. Hardy and Linda Loredo as Mrs. Laurel.

That cover is atrocious and an insult to Laurel & Hardy.
Yes it is "Come Clean".

I agree David - very poor taste. Yes definitely 'Come Clean'. I've got a 16mm print.

Stuart, I'm not sure my parents would have believe it was a Laurel and Hardy film in the box with a cover like that [Smile]

Sheesh! It looks like to me, that someone who basically made they're living off of "adult" suuper 8 films, moonlighted with prodicing laurel and hardy films, and used the "adult" mentality to market the Lads.

I'm sure Stan and Ollie would be just a little embarassed.
