(Review originally written at 2 February 2006)

This movie will always be remembered for having both Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in it (even though they're never a the same scene together.).

It basically is a movie with zero story and is only filled with some slapstick and comical moments. It has some incredible good timed moments which provides the movie with some hilarious sequences and moments. The movie also works pretty good as a satire on Hollywood.

Especially Stan Laurel shows his comical talent in a short scene. Also Oliver Hardy is good in a much bigger role. But real main character of the movie is played by Glenn Tryon who also really wasn't bad.

Not a brilliant highly memorable silent comedy but it's well constructed and good for some laughs. It certainly deserves more credit.
