The Flying Deuces is a 1939 comedy movie directed by A. Edward Sutherland. Stan and Ollie are on vacation in Paris. There, Ollie falls in love with a charming young lady who is, however, married to François, a Foreign Legion officer. Then the disappointed Ollie decides to commit suicide - of course with Stan.
