Swiss Miss

A touch of schmaltz worked box-office wonders for the Marx Brothers in A Night at the Opera, so Hal Roach pitched a tubful at this 1938 Laurel and Hardy vehicle. It's one of their worst films, with the pair as mousetrap salesmen in Switzerland (think about it) playing second fiddle to an excruciating romance between Walter Woolf King (baritone) and Della Lind (soprano). Their best bit—moving a piano across a rope bridge—is a steal from their classic short The Music Box. With Eric Blore; directed by John G. Blystone. 72 min.
