Trivia

In the early days of sound-films, before dubbing was perfected, foreign language versions were made of many early talkies. The Spanish-English version of this movie had Gilbert Roland in the role of "Louis LeBey," while the character was played by (future director) John Reinhardt for the German version, and Andre Luguet in French and Franco Corsaro in the Italian version.

Gilbert Roland is hilarious!
1 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can only think of one reason to watch this. I had a ball watching Gilbert Roland in the role of a Frenchman. Roland was one of the silent screen's most well known Latin lovers. He does not even TRY to sound like a French speaking character. His strong accent is pure south of the border. Pretty funny stuff. Otherwise embarrassing to all concerned. Moves at a snails pace and once it gets there it just sort of lays down and dies. Directed by Laurel and Hardy's boss Hal Roach for MGM.

Early sound effort that just keeps on talking and talking and talking. The dialog is astoundingly stupid, even for it's day. Good luck with this one.
