Dance Routine


  • Stan Laurel’s laughter was infectious; you can see Sharon Lynn (Lola) laughing unscripted as she tickles Stan during the hotel scene.
  • In the original script, Oliver Hardy’s part is identified by the name “Babe.” This was the nickname used by Oliver Hardy’s friends and colleagues for him.
  • The scenes where Stan and Ollie cross a shallow creek with their mule were filmed at Sherwood Forest, 40 miles north of Los Angeles, California. The location had no creek, so the studio excavated part of a dry old river bed and filled it with 25,000 gallons of water transported from a nearby lake.
