Trivia

Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey were originally scheduled to star in a college spoof entitled "Frat Heads", but with the success of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's The Devil's Brother (1933) and Roman Scandals (1933) with Eddie Cantor, RKO decided to make a costume period piece. All that remains of "Frat Heads" are a few publicity stills. See more »

Quotes

Bert: What does that all mean?
Bob: It means that the clothes we have on belongs to the King's physician. So, from now on, we're a couple of doctors.
Mary Ann Dale: Surgeons?
Bob: No, I could never be a surgeon. Too much inside work.

Merrie Old England

Cockeyed Cavaliers has Wheeler and Woolsey as a Restoration period kleptomaniac and his good friend. Wheeler and his taking ways land Bert and Bob in the village stocks in a very funny sequence. Rescuing them is their perennial leading lady Dorothy Lee who has been contracted to become a lady in waiting for Duke Robert Grieg's duchess Thelma Todd with the idea is that the Duke will take his pleasures.

Lee rescues the guys while she is fleeing in male drag. But they wind up back at Grieg's court with Bert and Bob pretending to be visiting royal physicians with their apprentice. Bert finds out Lee is a girl and Bob expresses some nasty thoughts to the duchess.

It's all climaxed with wild wild boar hunt. Very funny stuff although Woolsey plays the whole film without his ever present cigar which hadn't been invented yet.
