Stan Laurel was nearly killed during the making of this movie. In the scene where he is being chased down the street by a bull, it was a real bull chasing Stan, which caught up to him and nearly killed him. After this incident, the crew decided to scare Stan by telling him that the camera didn't get the picture, and the scene would have to be shot again. See more »


The writing on the chalkboard outside the bullring change between shots e.g. the numbers of bulls killed written next to the names appears and disappears. See more »

When I saw this movie for the first time I didn't believe my own eyes. In front of me there was a great -and well done- parody of Valentino... see Stan Laurel bullfight that way is like to see an excellent fencer in action! It's a very good parody, rich of ideas, with a clever and charming Stan... old and good like whiskey. (or the booze-up after that)
