This poorly executed production stars Victor McLaglen (as Dennis Patrick McHale), a smiling rogue who does the titular "Laughing at Life" from the 1913 mining scene opening until 1933. It's interesting to consider Mr. McLaglen is the same impressive actor from Raoul Walsh's "What Price Glory" (1926) who would find his footing in more sound pictures with director John Ford. While McLaglen handles most of the action, Regis Toomey (as Pat Collins) and Frankie Darro (as Chango) emerge from the lengthy cast as important story and screen-time significant co-stars. The woefulness here is may not be suggested by an illustrious supporting cast, headed by veteran Henry B. Walthall.

**** Laughing at Life (7/12/33) Ford Beebe ~ Victor McLaglen, Regis Toomey, Frankie Darro, Henry B. Walthall
