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 (Laurel) picks up a woman (Anita Garvin) and her "baby", who is actually a midget in disguise. He does not realize his passengers are crooks. When they get out of the cab without paying and leave the meter running, Stan follows them aboard a ship, where he exposes the crooks.[1]
