A couple of mugs

Continuing our exploration of Oliver Hardy’s criminal career.

From BONNIE SCOTLAND (1935), which alas isn’t too good. The anti-talents at MGM doing their best to destroy a winning formula.

But I like how Stan is doing his Sad Face in the frontal shot and his Happy Face in profile. A man of mercurial moods.

“You can see I wasn’t feeling very good,” begins Stan in explanation, “You see, my left -” but then he is interrupted, leaving us to wonder always.
