Trivia

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 »

Another fine mess he's gotten into, but without Ollie
16 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seeing Laurel without Hardy in a film seems strange, yet it's entertaining all the same. It's a well done parody of what became a classic silent film and it showcases Stan's talents very well. While his pictures with Oliver Hardy were great, these early solo efforts give you an idea of how skilled he was at his craft and how great he might have been had he continued in the tradition of Keaton and Chaplin as an individual star on his own. The dance sequence with his real-life wife in the café scene is the best part of the picture, and has some pretty funny bits to go with Laurel's excellent dance steps. And the bullfight climax is a gem, as even the bull takes a pratfall. And I like the irony in the scene where he's buried in hats and comes up wearing his familiar Laurel and Hardy bowler hat. As much as I love the Laurel and Hardy team and feel that there was never a funnier comedy duo on screen during their prime, it's nice to see them on their own once in a while (check out THE FIGHTING KENTUCKIAN that Hardy made with the Duke as another fine example.)
