Salomon & Stock Show

Salomon and Stock have performed their double act in the cabaret for years. In a pair of three-legged-trousers they sing the song “You Won’t Make It Alone”. One day Salomon unexpectedly replaces Stock with a young girl dancer. Stock decides to kill Salomon, and starts to chase him. Salomon is in full flight, and whenever Stock catches up with him, he stabs at his partner, but always misses. After a while, the tables are turned, and Salomon is now the one running after Stock. Because of the opportunity to star in a television show, the two comedians finally cool down, they slip back into their three-legged-trousers, and sing together anew “You Won’t Make It Alone”.
