Berth Marks is the second sound film starring Laurel and Hardy and was released on June 1, 1929.


Stan and Ollie are musicians traveling by sleeper train to perform in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, a popular vaudeville location at the time. They manage to board, but Stan drops a lot of their music, much to Ollie's annoyance. They antagonize a very short passenger (Sammy Brooks) by sitting on him and then frighten a woman who is getting undressed, after entering a private car when looking for their berth. Her angry husband comes out and rips a man's coat who had nothing to do with the intrusion; this man then blames another innocent bystander, which leads to a tit-for-tat of clothes tearing.
