Trivia

In Montreal, 9 January 1927, at the Laurier Palace theatre, 78 people died during a showing of this film. A fire broke out in the projection room, and was quickly under control, but the audience, consisting mostly of children, panicked and stampeded towards the exits; those in the gallery became trapped in the stairwell, and the 78 died of being crushed. 77 of the dead were 16 years old or younger.

This is the movie that got Stan Laurel out from behind the camera permanently at Roach. He was supposed to direct this movie and Oliver Hardy was supposed to play the role of the butler, but fell ill -- and so Laurel took the role himself.

This was one of the 'All Star' pictures that Roach was making at this time, taking a slightly out-of-luck movie star and surrounding him or her with several of Roach's comics. Theda Bara starred in a couple, Lionel Barrymore did at least one and this time the marquee value is provided by Harry Myers, who had starred in a popular version of A CONNECTICUTT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT a couple of years earlier, but is now best remembered for playing the millionaire in Chaplin's CITY LIGHTS.

Stan steals the show, although his technique is still a little crude here, taking some nice falls and doing an interesting drag bit. Worth the time of any L&H fan.
