A Chump at Oxford (1940) Poster

Alternate Versions

Shortenedand reedited as "Alter Ego" for TV consumption in the 59m
There exists also a colorized version.
This was the first of Hal Roach's "streamliners", made for United Artists, after MGM no longer distributed his films. Released in the US at 42 minutes (overseas at 62, including a prologue based on Laurel & Hardy's silent "From Soup To Nuts") it was designed to form the shorter half of a double bill screening. Both versions are available on Vivendi Entertainment's Laurel & Hardy: The Essential Collection. And many scholars of the team consider the shorter version to be the superior of the two.
