Sailors, Beware! is a silent comedy short film starring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy prior to their official billing as the duo Laurel and Hardy. The team appeared in a total of 107 films between 1921 and 1951.


An honest cab driver, Stan, picks up a woman Anita Garvin and her baby (actually a midget posing as a baby). He doesn’t realize his passengers are crooks. When they get out of the cab without paying and the meter running, Stan follows them aboard a ship, where he exposes the crooks.[1]
