It's on the Front Page
7 June 2002 | by (Wales, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Stan Laurel and Tyler Brooke star in this Hal roach comedy. It's got a good plot, including some really funny moments. The comedy acting of Brooke and Laurel is good, but the best part of the film is when Stan, who is scared of women, has to get into a comprimising position with Lillian Rich, for Tyler to take a picture of them together. Stan is at his best in this scene, and even uses his famous 'cry'.
