Comedians Al Cooke and Kit Guard would never be mistaken for Laurel and Hardy (or even Olsen and Johnson, for that matter), but they managed to supply plenty of laughs in the low-budget Legionnaires in Paris. Not "Foreign" Legionnaires, however, but American Legionnaires, at large in the City of Light. Suckered into believing they've killed a man, WWI doughboys Al and Kit are divested of their bankroll by a clever con artist. Convinced that they're fugitives from justice, our heroes flee Paris, landing jobs at an upstate New York beanery. Years later, the American Legion elects two delegates to attend a convention in Paris -- and guess which two are chosen?
