A Tough Winter

Available on BLU-RAY & DVD:

No review available.

Copyrighted April 14, 1930.
This was the 99th film in the series to be released.
Also filmed in German as Winter Wetter and in French as Semps d'hiver.
Leonard Maltin/Richard W. Bann list the toddler as Tommy Atkins. Child actors' expert Drina Mohacsi also tells me she is confident it is Atkins. However, Robert Demoss states at his usually-reliable website The Lucky Corner that the toddler is played by Jerry Bensmiller. This was later backed up by other very reliable sources.
There was another film of the same name released by Hal Roach Studios in 1923; this was a Snub Pollard comedy.
