Shorts Kilts is worth seeing for early Stan Laruel, James Finlayson, and Our Gang members Mickey Daniels and Mary Kornman
23 September 2014 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This is another short Stan Laurel made before his fateful teaming with Oliver Hardy. Here, he's a member of a Scottish family and James Finlayson is the member of the other one whose members end up feuding. Among the supporting cast are Mickey Daniels and Mary Kornman, members of the popular Our Gang shorts made for the same man as this short-Hal Roach. Stan is quite funny here and Daniels has his moment when he uses a wind blower to put out the fire whenever Stan lights a match. Mary is as cute as ever and she and Mickey certainly are their charming selves here. Fin makes a fine foil for Stan but anyone who's seen him with L & H knows that. In summary, Short Kilts is worth a look for fans of all of the above.
