Nothing But Trouble is a late Laurel and Hardy feature. The plot involves the team as a chef and a butler wrecking a dinner party - the bit where they cook a rubber steak and try to carve it at the table is particularly humorous. They also foil an assassination plot against a young king who is threatened for the throne by his jealous uncle.

At a low point in his career at the time, Buster Keaton worked as a gagman on this film. Keaton's regard for Laurel and Hardy was always high, and he was a good friend of Stan Laurel's throughout their lives.

The finale where the two are about to commit suicide by jumping off a tall building to the busy street below is an obvious Keaton idea.

Theatrical poster

At Laurel's funeral in 1965, Keaton said that he felt Laurel was a greater comedian than Charlie Chaplin.[1]


This film is not regarded by fans and critics as one of their better efforts although it does have some funny moments.[citation needed]
