The Big Noise

1944 NR

The kings of slapstick -- Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy -- star in this disarming comedy directed by Malcolm St. Clair. Playing janitors who pass themselves off as gumshoes, the boys land a job safeguarding crackpot inventor Alva P. Hartley (Arthur Space) … and his new megabomb. The supporting cast includes Doris Merrick, Veda Ann Borg, Frank Fenton and a young Robert Blake, who portrays Hartley's annoying son.
