Mr. Laurel & Mr. Finlayson

Author: boblipton from New York City
3 March 2002

There was a Stan Laurel before Oliver Hardy, and this 1927 pairing with Jimmy Finlayson -- who, a year later, would be relegated to the role of brilliant supporting actor in their comedies -- shows the Ollie-less Stan at his best. The direction, by Clyde Bruckman, is brisk. The gags all grow out of situations and character, instead of being randomly inserted.

This western comedy is about rancher Finalyson's beautiful daughter, Martha Sleeper -- a real screen beauty if there ever was one -- who refuses to marry the bad guy and how Jimmy and dimwitted cowhand Stan bumble their way into a successful defense of her and the ranch If this shows up, don't miss a chance to see it.

Stan Laurel and James Finlayson

Author: The Black Englishman from London, England
12 March 2002

Hal Roach gave Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy and James Finlayson to the world. In 'Should Tall Men Marry?', an Ollie-less Stan acts alongside Finlayson. The film was not a statement, but merely an experiment on the part of Roach that exploited the creative resources at his fingertips.
