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

I was not impressed by this short silent film with the 35 year old Oliver Hardy even though I was in the right frame of mind. There are no belly laughs when its comes to his silent material, and the whole viewing experience fell short of my expectations.
