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.
