Welcome to ANOTHER NICE MESS. This website aims to cover review of films made by the Hal Roach Studios between 1914-1948;
as well as the individual films featuring Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Charley Chase and the Our Gang short films made for MGM.

This website is non-profit and is maintained by just one person, which takes up a considerable amount of my time.
Your contribution, however small, will be acknowledged with a personal reply and a credit on the site. Thank you. ~ DLH

JAN 25:
-New credits found for Betty Danko and Chet Brandenburg - both in Laurel & Hardy's The Dancing Masters. But as this was not a Roach film it does not affect their total Roach credits; but still interesting discoveries none the less. [observations by Jesse].
-Added 2 new actors to the site from Laurel & Hardy's Jitterbugs: They are Gordon Carveth and Mike Lally. [thanks Jesse]
