Salt Water Daffy is a 1933 film featuring Shemp Howard.
Jack Hanley and Shemp Howard play pickpockets Elmer and Wilbur, who steal a musical, antique pocket watch from a navy admiral. On the lam, when they're discovered, they run into a Naval recruiting officer and are enlisted. Failing in their attempts to convince their doctor that they're 4-f, our hero's wind up in the platoon of CPO Lambert. The bumbling recruits are banished to the recruits' sanitation center, where they accidently give a reluctant haircut and shave to a visiting European naval dignitary. Again banished, this time to a garbage detail, the boys run into the dignitary once again, but unknown to them he's actually a foreign spy.
