Stan Laurel is funny in two roles in Rupert of Hee Haw
I just watched this Stan Laurel short on YouTube. He made this before his fateful teaming with Oliver Hardy. He plays two roles, a king and some kind of entertainer named Rudolph Razz who poses as him. James Finlayson is also in this. The king is actually kind of a lush who keeps falling and tripping. When Rudolph poses as him he gets a great greeting from Our Gang (Mickey Daniels, Mary Kornman, Ernie Morrison, Joe Cobb, and Jackie Condon) but when Rudolph pays most of his attention to Mary, Mickey gets jealous and kicks Rudolph in the you-know-where! Plenty of slapstick scenes was enough to make me laugh especially when they happen one after another for a more than a minute. Oh, and the leading lady-The Princess-is Mae Laurel-Stan's common law wife at the time. So on that note, I recommend Rupert of Hee Haw.
