The Dancing Masters

1943

Director

Stan & Ollie are proprietors of a dancing & ballet class when they are paid a visit by a couple of insurance racketeers (one of which is a young Robert Mitchum). Ollie is talked into insuring Stan's legs, then proceeds to find ways to hurt him in order to claim on the no-good deal to raise money for a friend who is developing his invention.

An 'ok' film which certainly isn't one of their best, nor is it their worst. The over-long bus ride projected against a pre-shot backdrop on a rollercoaster is quite embarassing.
Laurel & Hardy would only make four more movies together after this one.
