Welles visited Laurel and Hardy on the set of "Jitterbugs" while they were filming their "Original Zoot Suit Band" performance scene and posed for photos, playing musical instruments with Laurel & Hardy and co-star Robert Bailey. Welles played saxophone, Laurel played trombone, Hardy played trumpet and Bailey played clarinet. See more »

i watch this when i was on holiday in tennerife when this film was on. I kind of enjoyed it.It's not the best or worst comedy i have seen, but has got some good chuckles all the way through. There were some bits i din't understand. But then i am not a laurel and hardy fan! But it was good old traditional slpastick mayhem form the duo in this madcap comedy.
