Laurel & Hardy: Night Owls
Available on iTunes
A failed cop persuades two vagrants that they should pretend to rob a house so he can capture the thieves and take credit for it. But the burglary is bungled; the residence they select is owned by the chief of police. The story echoes the old vaudeville sketches Laurel knew so well. The film marks the initial use of Laurel & Hardy’s signature song KU KU, composed by Marvin Hatley. Driving to the studio one day, Laurel heard it being played as a time signal over the Roach studios’ radio station, KFVD. Directed by James Parrott. With Edgar Kennedy and James Finlayson.
