Stan inherits a yacht and a South Pacific island. Ollie and Stan sail there with 2 other men. They shipwreck on a new atoll and settle there. An ex-fiancee joins them. They declare an independent nation and problems arise.
Stan, who has remained faithfully at his World War I post for twenty years, finally comes home where his best friend, Ollie, takes him in, thus allowing him to discover the many conveniences of the modern world.
Created as a gag for Stan Laurel's birthday, That's That! is a slapdash and poorly edited smattering of random clips from The Laurel and Hardy Murder case, Way Out West and other films peppered with ridiculous sound effects to make an unintelligible short that makes us wonder "What did I just watch?" Apparently there are pieces that ended up on the cutting room floor and toward the end there are a few outtakes of people swearing, so for the very die-hard collector there are minor pieces of interest. However, the fact that money was put into preserving and restoring this when there are so many other better and more worthy films is a bit frustrating.
