First Laurel and Hardy Film is Released

Laurel and Hardy's first film was released on December 3, 1927.
December 3, 1927
It was on this day that famous comedy team, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, released their first picture. Putting Pants on Philip was a silent short film featuring the pair who went on to produce 106 more films together until 1950. Being that this was their first film, the iconic costumes that we are familiar with today had not yet been decided. In this story, Laurel plays a kilt-wearing Scottish nephew to Hardy. In one scene, a stray dog joined in on a chase scene running after Hardy. It was unscripted.
