BONNIE SCOTLAND
1935, Warner Bros., 80 min, USA, Dir: James W. Horne

When Laurel learns an inheritance awaits him in Scotland, he and Hardy stow away on a boat to claim it. But there is no fortune awaiting Stan, so he and his friend enlist in the British Army, and are promptly shipped off to a dangerous mission in India (under the command of the redoubtable James Finlayson). Ollie’s epic confrontation with a snuff box will have you in stitches!

THE DEVIL’S BROTHER
1933, Warner Bros., 90 min, USA, Dir: Hal Roach, Charley Rogers

Northern Italy was rife with bandits in the early 1700s, none more notorious than singing bandit Fra Diavolo (Dennis King), who enlists “Stanlio” Laurel and “Ollio” Hardy to help him rob a lord (James Finlayson) and romance the man’s lady (Thelma Todd). This adaptation of the Daniel Auber operetta is filled with hilarious sequences, including Stan’s "Kneesy-Earsy-Nosey" game.
