The opening credits show a picture of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy on the frame following Lyda Roberti's name, but they are not identified. Also, they are not in the comprehensive cast list in the end credits; so, technically, they both are uncredited. See more »
I only really watched this movie to catch Laurel & Hardy and, to be honest, they and Mischa Auer as a randy movie star are the only things about this movie worth watching. Too bad that L&H's screen time amounts to little more than five minutes, and Auer has to play second fiddle to lesser talents like Patsy Kelly and Rosina Lawrence (whose final US movie this was before retiring to get married). Kelly is especially annoying at times as she seemingly labours under the misapprehension that if she SHOUTS HER LINES they're bound to be even funnier. Even Jack Haley, soon to be the Tin Man in THE WIZARD OF OZ, is unremarkable as a love-struck car mechanic who moves to Hollywood to win his sweetheart a screen test. The movie is only 70 minutes long but, until Stan & Ollie make their belated appearance, it seems a lot, lot longer.
