Trivia

This is the Spanish language re-shoot of their February 1931 short Chickens Come Home- (1931). For this version Stan and Ollie speak phonetic Spanish (quite well) and interact with an entirely new Spanish speaking cast with some completely new scenes. The "Regurgitator" during the party scene, in particular is worth seeing. See more »

Laurel & Hardy, along with James Finlayson, remain for the Spanish version of Chickens Come Home- , Politiquerias
3 January 2013 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

While this is the Spanish version of Chickens Come Home- with Stan & Ollie and James Finlayson speaking the language by reading off a blackboard out of camera range, the above title actually translates into "Playing at Politics". The rest of the supporting cast is changed to that of either the native country or someone who happens to speak the language well. Countess Rina de Liguoro-who takes the Mae Busch part of the blackmailer-for instance, is from Italy as explained in a line specifically spoken here in order to acknowledge the Spanish-speaking audience of their detection. For Thelma Todd's role of Mrs. Hardy, Linda Loredo is picked and, boy, is she even more of battleaxe than Ms. Todd as evidenced by an additional scene where she destroys Ollie's hat, coat, and then kicks him for good measure! For the Norma Drew role of Mrs. Laurel, it's Carmen Granada and she's also quite hilariously suspicious with her reactions. It should be noted that these foreign versions are usually longer than the American ones and this one is no exception as there are a couple of vaudeville acts added to pad the running time. One is magician Abraham J. Cantu who has tricks involving cards, cigarettes, handkerchiefs, and newspapers. The other is Hadji Ali, an Egyptian who downs lots of water, hazelnuts, and some kerosene before spitting them all out. You really have to see them to believe them! Oh, and both acts involve Finlayson getting roped in, to his consternation. While neither act was really necessary to the story, it's fascinating to watch them just the same. So in summary, I don't consider Politiquerias as consistently funny as the English-language predecessor mainly because of the padded acts, but it's still very entertaining to watch because of those acts. Oh, and the incriminating photo Rina presents to Ollie is even more spicy then the one Mae showed in the original short.
