Laurel & Hardy: Chickens Come Home
In a literal reworking of LOVE ’EM AND WEEP, Mr. Hardy plays an important businessman. Having made his fortune in fertilizer, Hardy is well qualified to run for mayor, but is blackmailed by a venomous old flame from his past. Directed by James W. Horne. With Mae Busch as the gold-digger, Thelma Todd as Mrs. Hardy (she was originally slated to enact the vamp according to the shooting script), and James Finlayson as the opportunistic butler, a role he exchanged with Hardy for this remake.
