Trivia

This Spanish language film was produced simultaneously with the filming of the two English language Laurel and Hardy shorts Be Big! (1931) and Laughing Gravy (1930). The two shorts were edited together into one continuous film. Laurel and Hardy read their lines from cue cards on which Spanish was written phonetically. At the time of early talkies, dubbing was not yet perfected. The same was done for a French language version, Les carottiers (1932). See more »

Hal Roach - The Short Film King
26 February 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Although not all of Laurel and Hardy's films were good, you cannot deny the intensity of Hal Roach's creativity. The fact that he produced 740 films is reason enough to watch this short subject. If you are an aspiring director and want to make a short film as a calling card, watch this short subject and study Roach's films as he was the prime mover in short films.
