Whitmore (Frank Jaquet) runs a successful bean-cannery, but he is to be muscled out of an army contract by an unscrupulous association of bean-canners, & what's worse, they even have a spy among his ranks, manager Kimble (Wheeler Oakman). But as if that all wasn't bad enough, Whitmore agrees to take care of 2 orphans from wartorn England, not knowing that they are full-grown men, the incompetent duo of Bert (Harry Langdon] & Alfie (Charles Rogers).

But even though the 2 have the tendency to mess everything up royally, Whitmore gives in to the pleas of his wife (Mira McKinney) & his daughter Peggy (Cathy Lewis), & employs them at the cannery.

Meanwhile Whitmore's advertising director Sparky (Dave O'Brien has a great idea for an ad-campaign, to borrow a famed 100.000 Dollar-necklace to use it in a photo shoot. & now Kimple sees his great chance to wreck Whitmore's cannery when he arranges for the necklace to disappear. But by some weird coincidence, Bertie finds the necklace ... cans it & has it shipped off.

& this is where Kimble's plan backfires, because as soon a word gets oput that there's a 100.000 Dollar-necklace in one of Whitmore's beancans, everybody is buying them by the dozen, making Whitmore's sale figures shoot sky high.

Bert & Alf have since picked up  the trail of the can with the necklace & decide to follow it wherever it goes & whatever it takes ... even if that means they have to go to a seedy bar in the docks dressed as ladies !

But in the end, after a small foodfight, they can retrieve the can & save Whitmore's cannery - who almost had to pay for the necklace.


Double Trouble is a comedy that has a certain cheapish charme to it, butz at the same time it is relytively unfunny & unoriginal, & is most certainly not a film Harry Langdon should be remembered by, as due to budgetary & temporal constraints, most slapstick scenes are terribly downplayed.
