(Charles Rogers, Gus Meins, US 1934, 80 min., 35mm)
Dryden Kids. Have you ever tried to pay off a mortgage on a shoe? Witness the attempts of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in this classic comedy in which they play Ollie Dee and Stanley Dum, two bumbling inhabitants of Toyland. When the nasty Barnaby threatens the livelihood of pretty Little Bo Peep, it’s Dee and Dum to the rescue . . . that is, if they don’t trip over each other first! An unusual and memorable screen adaptation of Victor Herbert’s operetta.
