1938

John G. Blystone
Director

Laurel & Hardy feature length film begins at the end of WWI with Stan on guard duties whilst his comrades (including Ollie) go off to combat. Not realising that the war has ended, Stan is still there 20 years later guarding the trench until his story ends up in the newspaper and he becomes a hero. Upon hearing this Ollie decides to go and see him and bring him home for dinner. Big mistake.
You wouldn't believe how difficult it was to get a decent head shot of Laurel in this movie!

A re-make, in part, of their first sound short Unaccustomed As We Are (1929).
