Big-time (so they think) vaudeville stars Stanley and Oliver take the train to Pottsville, their next booking. On board, they bumble into the wrong sleeping compartment, startling a semi-dressed woman. Her irate husband mistakes another passenger for the intruder and starts a coat-ripping free- for-all. The boys spend the rest of the trip trying to squeeze themselves into their cramped single upper berth.Written by

Laurel and Hardy play musicians who need to board a train as they are on tour for a so- called big vaudeville act. After losing all of their music and one instrument, Stan and Ollie attempt to settle in their overnight sleeping compartment. They don't achieve this without causing the other passengers to tear each other's clothing first. I found "Berth Marks" to be disappointing. There weren't enough gags and the story wasn't as interesting as it could have been. However, such disappointments from Laurel and Hardy's best period are few and far between.
