A brief Technicolor clip in poor quality survives of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy involved with a bear in a cave.

Although no print of this film is known to exist, the complete 90-minute soundtrack does. MGM transferred early sound discs to tape and approximately half of this material was released on LP in the early 1980s - on an obscure label. This included parts of the dialogue but was mainly the musical numbers. This is the only Laurel and Hardy "feature" film no longer available. Please check your attic.

Film debut of Metropolitan Opera baritone Lawrence Tibbett.

Is on AFI's "Lost Films" list.

Just prior to release, scenes with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy were filmed interspersed throughout the film to increase box-office appeal.



This is the film that contains the infamous scene where Lawrence Tibbett sings while he is tied between two posts and whipped.
