It was quite apparent from his appearance that Stan Laurel was gravely ill during production. Completion of the film was delayed while he had an operation in Paris. He would fully recover and live another 15 years. See more »

The boys last film is not the clunker that many would have you believe. There are numerous scenes that made me laugh out loud, especially the scenes involving Stan's pet lobster. The style is geared toward more gentle slapstick and philosophical humour that suits the aged stars perfectly.
All in all a bright and gay movie with pleasant scenery and jolly characters. Give it a try, it's far better than the big studio pictures of the 40's in it's revised approach to the comedy duo.
