Stan Inherits a saloon
25 January 2002 | by (Sheffield, England) – See all my reviews

Stan arrives in the wild west, no place for a timid, mild mannered man! He's inherited a saloon from his uncle, unless he dies in which case it goes to his two cousins! It's not a bad film at all, I've only seen a few of Stan Laurel's comedies before he teamed up with Ollie but they are quite good and this one deserves a looking at if you're into the silent stuff. I'd give this one 7/10.
