Chickens Come Home

Politiquerias

1931


One of my favourite Laurel & Hardy shorts, this 3-reeler is a re-working of an earlier silent film of theirs, Love 'Em And Weep (1927), where an old flame from Hardy's past turns up at his office one day and makes blackmail demands from him to pay her off or else she will cause him hassle. Fin is brilliant as the crafty and ear-wigging butler and does the all-time unstoppable double-take (which in real-life he actually knocked himself out with!) when he sees Stan & Ollie trying to leave the house under a large coat.
