In the film, there are nuts for sale called "Nigger Toes". These are actually Brazil nuts and is the only known film to reference them as such. The nuts were called this for a lengthy time but fell out of favor with the general public due to it being more like a racial slur. See more »

A Human Character
5 February 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The 32 year old Stan Laurel uses his comedy equipment to tell a human story in this short film. He worked overtime to get it right, in spite of the fact that there were no story conferences. He was financially destitute by this stage, so you could see shades of desperation in his portrayal.
