Trivia

Stan Laurel was embarrassed by the final film and hoped it would get little publicity or release. Ironically, the movie's copyright lapsed and the film went into the public domain, making this the most easily obtainable of the films he made with Oliver Hardy. See more »

Why won't people give this a chance?
23 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

After some real clunkers in the '40s, it's nice to be able to say that L & H's final film is a good one.

Okay, so they look pretty old and they are the only members of the cast who haven't been dubbed, but this film is highly entertaining and filled with vintage Stan and Ollie humour. The concept of them building a home on a deserted island is literally previously unexplored territory and there is an effective underlying message about how a 100%-tolerance society can result in anarchy.

It might take some getting used to but it's still a film well worth seeing.
