The 34 Year Old Stan Laurel
27 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Another run of the mill silent, short Stan Laurel film at the ripe old age of 34. He is unfunny as usual, without Oliver Hardy, no sound, and lacks a good script. What he should have done was adapt novels into slapstick shorts like Chaplin did with 'Carmen'.
