Trivia

Stan Laurel was embarrassed by the final film and hoped it would get little publicity or release. Ironically, the movie's copyright lapsed and the film went into the public domain, making this the most easily obtainable of the films he made with Oliver Hardy. See more »

Goofs

As Stan and Ollie enter the yacht's galley for the first time, Stan all of a sudden has lost a lot of weight (and no wonder. The two scenes were filmed months apart between Stan's illness and hospitalization, where he lost around 50 pounds). See more »

Sad to see Laurel & Hardy in such a bad shape, but each one of their movies must be approached as an historical study.
14 September 2000 | by ennio.bertonaSee all my reviews

As other people said, I'd like to have never seen the Couple in a movie like Atoll K. But things happened and, as a L&H fan, I'm curious about anything they've done. Something more: I wish I could have seen, studied, touched anything still existing in the world about them! Anyway, mainly, my approach is "study": Not only looking at their movies for an hour of fun, but going inside an historical phenomenon, to know anything concerned. With that idea, if I can be sad - from one side - looking at them in such a bad shape, ill and with a very old-man-face, not the babies' faces we were accustomed with, from the other side I disagree against the need to express a (bad) evaluation: this is a rarity, something we haven't to worry about in terms of evaluation. It worths 4, 5 or more? ridiculous !! This is only, and for all, a moment of History. Something not to forget. Wish I could find the 100% uncut edition! Kind regards to everybody! Ennio
