Trivia

'Love 'Em And Weep' was remade by the same studio (Hal Roach) in 1931 as 'Chickens Come Home', a 'three-reel' talkie. Oliver Hardy (who had a bit part as a judge in this silent) took the featured part, which was originally played by James Finlayson in this silent version. Finlayson is relegated to the small part of the butler in the remake. Stan Laurel and Mae Busch play the same parts in both films. See more »

Goofs

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 »

The 35 Year Old Oliver Hardy
28 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The 35 year old Oliver Hardy acted alongside the 37 year old Stan Laurel in 'Love Em and Weep' under the direction of Hal Roach. A below average short silent film that lacks pace and a good script, but merely pads out their c.v. and pays their bills.
