Goofs

When the two bellhops are unloading luggage from the taxi, the sidewalk in the background wasn't blocked off to non-crew. As a result, you can watch bystanders wander up and gather in small groups to watch the movie being filmed, or realize a movie is being made on the sidewalk and duck into doorways. See more »

No Laurel for this one
23 July 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Hop To It finds Oliver Hardy teamed with Bobby Ray, a Stan Laurel like silent comedian who just doesn't quite get it. The two are bellhops who proceed to make holy hash out of the hotel business.

Ray seemed to lack just the right spark to team with Hardy though the film has some funny moments. Such as poor Ray getting the wrong room number and he keeps bathing a choleric old man. Also tying their shoes together so that he and Ollie trip each other up. Certainly Laurel like moments, but Ray does not have the innocence quite down.

At the end an exasperated Hardy is chasing Ray up a flagpole and then starts shaking it. Ray at that point was doing more Harold Lloyd than Stan Laurel.

It's a funny enough short, but it would have been so much better with Stanley.
