Laurel and Hardy … filmed in French & Spanish

Did you know that Laurel and Hardy, the 1930’s comedy movie stars, reshot a number of their films in French, Spanish, Italian and German?

Laurel and Hardy couldn’t speak any foreign languages, so had voice coaching, and often used native language speaking supporting cast members. These language versions helped to boost their popularity internationally. Pardon Us was reshot in all four foreign languages. Chickens Come HomeBlotto and Below Zero were re-filmed in French and Spanish.
