Enjoyable silent Laurel & Hardy comedy short.
17 July 2006 | by Boba_Fett1138See all my reviews

Nothing too remarkable just some good old fashioned entertainment.

The story of this movie is definitely not the strongest and is quite simple as well as formulaic, especially in the beginning. Luckily the movie later turns into a more slapstick like filled silent comedy shorts, with as a result some memorable funny sequences.

There are certainly some good comical sequences in this movie, which help to distinct this movie from other early Laurel & Hardy silent comedy shorts. Also the characters are fun and deliciously over-the-top. I especially liked the prince and his prime minister, for who at first our two boys were mistaken. The moments with them were the one's that made me laugh the most, despite the fact that it mostly was just nothing more than a constantly returning continuity joke.

The famous Jean Harlow also plays a part in this movie. Her presence works uplifting for the movie and also probably help to make this movie more of a memorable one than it in fact truly is on its own.

Not the best or most interesting Laurel & Hardy silent comedy shorts but enough things present to make this movie a better than average one.

7/10
