Oliver Hardy and Charley Chase
12 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Charles Chaplin deserved the accolades that he received at the early part of his career. Harold Lloyd later developed his own style and duly received his accolades. Charley Chase was not recognised as a significant contributor, and watching 'Long Fliv the King', you can see why.
