During the harvest season
12 July 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Oranges And Lemons finds Stan Laurel among the farm workers of California during the harvest season picking the ripe fruit off the vines. Funny that in 1923 there are no Mexicans among the migrant workers because they were certainly there even that early. There is one particular fruit that Stan wants to pick that being the boss's daughter Katherine Grant.

Traces of the familiar Stan Laurel of the talkies and partnered with Oliver Hardy can certainly be discerned. From the fields the action of the film moves to the packing house where the fruit is crated to be shipped. Stan flees there from his boss, but proves to be mighty resourceful for such a ninny. Best scene is him taking advantage of a co-worker's paunch and the creative way he used a seesaw to stack crates.

Pleasant enough silent comedy for Stan Laurel's legion of fans.
