Movie Info

Newly wealthy oil millionaire Cyrus Brittle (James Finlayson) awakens with a hangover, after an excessive night of drinking, to find himself married to a middle-aged gold-digger (Charlotte Mineau) and the harried victim of her blackmailing and potentially murderous family (Noah Young and Edna Marion). Aided by his loyal butler (Oliver Hardy) and a none-too-bright lawyer (Stan Laurel), Brittle manages to, at least temporarily, elude the troublemakers, fleeing to an exclusive hotel and, finally, a seaside fun park. An early, rather loosely scripted entry in the career of Laurel and Hardy, Sugar Daddies has them assuming unfamiliar roles and playing against as opposed to WITH each other, but they have moments together that shine through, spawning the seeds of soon-to-be classic routines and mannerisms. Laurel and Finlayson are really the leads here, with Hardy confined to a supporting position. Hectic climactic sequences set amidst a long-gone Los Angeles amusement area were mostly improvised on the spot.more
