The available print has been composed from material lifted from different sources. The opening MGM credits are not the originals but a recreation using the ones from "Big Business" changing the title and certain names. This was quite a mistake since the copyright reads MCMXXIX (1929). Since the original MGM credits are probably lost it is impossible to verify if James Finlayson was listed before Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy (who are the only actors to receive any billing at all in today's available prints).
