James Finlayson
12 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The added ingredient needed for Laurel and Hardy films was James Finlayson as a foil. Without him, the duo would not be complete.

Laurel and Hardy needed at least seven years of development before their comic genius came through. Hal Roach paid for the privilege, and Charley Chase and James Finlayson were their contributors.
