OVERLOOKED FILM: DR. PYCKLE AND MR. PRIDE (1925)

Stan Laurel takes on the two title roles in this 20-minute Joe Rock production directed by Scott Pembroke and Joe Rock.  The titles were by Tay Gernett but the title and plot of this comedy came from someplace else.  Wonder where?.

Supporting Stan Laurel are Julie Leonard, Sid Crossley, Dot Farley, and Pete the dog.  (Pete the dog really leaped to fame ad buster Brown's dog Tige and as the mascot of The Little Rascals.  Poor Pete was poisoned and died in 1930; one of his offspring took on his roles; later various unrelated dogs "became" Pete.  The circle around Pete's eye was originally provided by Max Factor.)

Take a look at the genius of Stan Laurel before he teamed up with Oliver Hardy.
