The 34 Year Old Oliver Hardy
31 October 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Oliver Hardy is a sheriff who is threatened by Buck Jones. If Hardy was my sheriff I'd be a bit nervous myself. He has a moustache in this film which demonstrates diversity, but his expressions are still the same. Is he an actor?
