Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Some of the titles in this story have a different font than the others. That's because they were added in later, to replace the original titles which had gone missing over the years (legend has it they were processed with inferior chemicals and were the first parts of the films to deteriorate).
  • This was one of a series of films that Stan Laurel did that were parodies of popular films. This four reel short was a parody of Blood and Sand with Rudolph Valentino and was in theatres only three months after that film was released.
  • Stan Laurel was nearly killed during the making of this movie. In the scene where he is being chased down the street by a bull, it was a real bull chasing Stan, which caught up to him and nearly killed him. After this incident, the crew decided to scare Stan by telling him that the camera didn't get the picture, and the scene would have to be shot again.
