Flying Deuces, The (1939)

Send to Chromecast

The Flying Deuces was the first Laurel and Hardy film not to be produced by Hal Roach, although they had played supporting roles in MGM features previously. The film was made and released by RKO Radio Pictures.

The film did well, and the duo decided to leave Hal Roach Studios and move to 20th Century Fox after finishing Saps at Sea, under the impression that they would gain greater creative control under a new studio. This turned out to be a mistake.

Director A. Edward Sutherland and Stan Laurel did not get on well together. Sutherland said he would rather eat a tarantula than work with Laurel again.
