It was during the shooting of this last Laurel & Hardy short that A. J. Jefferson, Stan Laurel's father, visited the set. It was the first time that he had the opportunity of seeing his son perform on-camera. See more »
I haven`t seen THICKER THAN WATER for many many years untill I caught it on television this afternoon . The one thing to strike me about it was how episodic it all is - Stan and Ollie wash some dishes , pay some money for the rented furniture , buy a clock and go to hospital and that`s the story . When I say story I don`t mean plot because there isn`t really one so it`s not really the duo`s better shorts even if I did laugh out loud a couple of times . That said I will still be watching the other Laurel and Hardy shorts the BBC is showing this week
