Trivia

"The Stolen Jools" is this film's original title. It was made by the National Vaudeville Artists (NVA) as part of a charity campaign and distributed free to theatres in 1931. After the showing a live speaker would come out and request donations. The film was rediscovered in 1972 in Britain, where it had been released in 1932 as "The Slippery Pearls," one of the Masquers Club comedy series for RKO. Subsequently a U.S. print was discovered and the film's true title, origin and purpose were at last known. See more »

A Lot Of Stars Really Made This Film Great!
23 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film one day when I was watching television and surfing through the channels, I didn't know that it had a lot of really famous people in it, and so I decided to watch it. When I saw this, I was just laughing and laughing away, I thought that this was very brilliant and funny, and a lot of famous movie stars really made this film great! It is a bloody shame that so many people slander this great film, because I thought that this was a hysterical laugh out-loud funny time! This film is actually one of my favorites from the early years of talking pictures, it took me some time to decide on that, but in the end I decided that this was one of my favorites!

We have appearances from a lot of great ones, Buster Keaton, The Little Rascals, Laurel and Hardy, Edward G. Robinson, and a lot more! This film has got a lot of my favorites in it, such as the ones that I just mentioned above!

Now I would like to say a little something that you are probably going to listen to: You really must see this, because when you watch it, you are going to be laughing and laughing your head off! You totally going to love this really hysterical film, you are going to think that it is one of the funniest you have seen in some time!

10/10
