Stan Laurel in Africa
11 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The title of this film should have been 'Roughest Zimbabwe' or 'Roughest Kenya'. It is obviously one country that Stan has been to in the continent of Africa, and his experience is very much an on safari experience that you would have in Kenya, or in Stanley and Livingston's Rhodesia.
