"Blotto" is a 1930 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film starring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.

Plot

During the prohibition period, Laurel and Hardy make plans to spend a wild night out at the "Rainbow club". Phoning Stan at home, Ollie suggests a ruse by which Stan is to convince his wife, who keeps him on a short leash, that he has been called away on business. Stan offers to bring a bottle of liquor which his wife has hidden in the house, assuring Ollie that "she's so dumb she'll never know the difference". "Mrs Laurel", eavesdropping on another line, immediately launches a scheme of her own: she replaces the alcohol with a non-alcoholic mixture. Stan and Ollie proceed to get "drunk" at the nightclub, having a wonderful time. That is, until an angry "Mrs Laurel" turns up armed with a shotgun, reveals that their "liquor" is merely cold tea, chases them into the street, and demolishes their cab with one well-aimed shot.
