Nice Work At Directing Stan Laurel!
23 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One day at the store, I found this short on a boxed set of Laurel and Hardy shorts, and so I bought it and took it home to watch the films on it. When I got to this one, I watched it. Stan Laurel did a very fabulous job at directing this short, and not only did Stan do a fabulous directing job, but this film is also really laugh out-loud hysterical, this is brilliant! It only goes to show that Stan Laurel could both act and direct greatly! While Stan Laurel has always been one of my favorite comedians, he is also now one of my favorite silent directors! For years, I have seen a lot of comedy shorts from the silent era and I have really loved a lot of them!

I was really surprised a how well of a job that Stan Laurel did directing this short, he was very fabulous at it, so he was great in two departments, acting and directing!

If you have not seen this yet, then let me tell you a little something, you really should see this, because you are going to be laughing and laughing over and over again when you watch this, you are going to love this masterpiece brought to you by director Stan Laurel!
