Did You Know?


Since both Laurel and Hardy appear in the film it is considered an early Laurel and Hardy film despite the fact that Hardy's role is just a bit part, and they barely share any scenes in the film at all. See more »


In several instances, Mrs. Tillsbury, refers to her husband, Titus, by the wrong name. After Titus has collapsed in his office, you don't have to be much of a lip-reader to see her exclaim "Jimmy!" referring to actor James Finlayson by his real name, instead of his character name. See more »

Remake was far better
26 February 2005 | by (Manchester,England) – See all my reviews

LOVE 'EM AND WEEP was a very early pre-team short featuring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy at the Hal Roach Studios;the only problem is that they share no virtually no scenes together,and the double act working here is Stan and James Finlayson,not Stan and Ollie.The remake,CHICKENS COME HOME(1931),when the Laurel and Hardy team was well established,is far superior with less frantic pacing and better characterisation.Like Finlayson,several L&H co-stars make their first appearance with the boys;Charlie Hall,Mae Busch.Although the above remake has 10 minutes extra footage(foreign versions had even more footage),Laurel and Hardy together are far funnier than Laurel and Finlayson,though Fin is great as the blackmailing butler,played in this silent original by Hall.
