One of the most memorable Laurel and Hardy features but not really one of their best.
The problem that some of their longer films had was that they could feel like a couple of short films patched together, and this is exactly such an example. The first half, where Stan and Ollie become servants for the wonderful James Finlayson, really has absolutely no connection to what A Chump at Oxford is best known for. But it's also the funniest part.
The second half peaks at the bit in the maze, with Stan's physical comedy really coming to the fore during the 'three hands' part, but drags a bit thereafter. As ever though, the laughs are still plentiful and you do, of course, get that early Peter Cushing performance.
By the way, they're still like that at Oxford.
