Facts
This silent film has some important history to it: Oliver Hardy was scheduled to play the part of the butler but had to pull out after he burnt himself with a leg of lamb.  Stan Laurel was persuaded (albeit reluctantly) to step in to replace him.
 •On January 9th 1927, at the Laurier Palace theatre, Montreal, Canada, 78 people died during a showing of this film. A fire broke out in the projection room, and was quickly under control, but the audience, consisting mostly of children, panicked and stampeded towards the exits; those in the gallery became trapped in the stairwell, and the 78 died of being crushed. 77 of the dead were 16 years old or younger.
