Billy Haines and Laurel and Hardy

Sorry you can’t see the caricatures of Laurel and Hardy very well, but I’ve never seen them in a newspaper ad and thought I’d pass this one on. It’s from April 5, 1931.

The short features Mae Busch and is a re-make of a 1927 film.

The feature is also a re-make of a silent, from 1922. It stars William Haines, who soon was forced to give up stardom and become a much-in-demand interior designer. Hedda Hopper, in her pre-gossip column days, plays a snooty society woman.
