The 34 Year Old Stan Laurel, 27 March 2002
Author: The Black Englishman from London, England

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'.
