Trivia that mentions this person:
The Flying Deuces [1939]
  • This is Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's only non-Hal Roach-produced film in which Stan had a hand in the writing and editing (as he had in the Roach films).
    Our Gang Follies [1937]
  • The final two-reel [Our Gang comedy]; also the final two-reel short produced by Hal Roach studios
  • The aged character played by Henry Brandon is identical to the villainous "Barnaby" character that he portrayed in another Hal Roach comedy, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's feature film Babes in Toyland. While his character in this film is not identified by any name on-screen, he was identified as "Barnaby" in the shooting script and is casually referred to as such.
    Babes in Toyland [1961]
  • The Hal Roach original (Babes in Toyland) starred Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy and had a costumed mouse that looked suspiciously like Mickey Mouse. This Disney remake featured two comedians obviously impersonating Laurel and Hardy.
