LAUREL & HARDY COMEDIES
- THE STOLEN JOOLS
(2) - 1931.
Star-packed, including Laurel & Hardy, promotional short subject intended to raise
funds for the National Variety Artists tuberculosis sanatorium, produced in association
with Chesterfield cigarettes. Plot involves the investigation of the reported theft of
Norma Shearer's jewelry. Made by the National Vaudeville Artists (NVA) as part of a
charity campaign and distributed free to theatres in 1931. After the showing a live
speaker would come out and request donations. The film was rediscovered in 1972 in
Britain, where it had been released in 1932 as "The Slippery Pearls," one of the
Masquers Club comedy series for RKO. Subsequently a U.S. print was discovered and the
film's true title, origin and purpose were at last known. Mint in the OB - $39
- Laurel and Hardy "2-Reel"
