Kid Speed has Larry Semon with Oliver Hardy in good support
10 August 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Kid Speed is another Larry Semon short with Oliver Hardy in support that I found on a Platinum DVD Laurel and Hardy collection. This time Hardy and Semon are car race rivals for a girl's affection. Since Hardy is the heavy, he's the one who tries to keep Semon from winning with help from various friends. One of my favorite gags involves Hardy and pals washing themselves with water from a barrel when another barrel on the roof spills tar through a roof hole into the water barrel causing Hardy and friends to look pitch black! There's also plenty of laughs involving people slipping into and out of automobiles and one more involving the winner and girl with white paint on the winner's face! Larry Semon is funny throughout and Hardy once again displays mannerisms that would come full fruition when he eventually teamed with Stan Laurel. By all means, seek this one out!
