Showing Elmer Raguse, Richard Bann adds: The TOPPER car blocks a
clear view of Lake Laurel & Hardy (long before it was so
christened), but you can see the HRS film vault, also the
guardhouse for the studio's front gate, and the few steps at the
far right which lead to the apartment where Hal Roach's mother
lived. His dad lived there too, but had passed less than a year
before this great still was shot.

a double-breasted jacket in the photograph, which he doesn't wear
in A-HAUNTING WE WILL GO. Also, in A-HAUNTING, they are
vagrants and Stan's clothes are pretty wrinkled...
Tyler St Mark wrote: Lou, I ruled out "A-Haunting" for the
same reason. As I said before, Stan appears to be wearing a suit
from the MGM wardrobe but, interestingly enough, he is not wearing
his standup collar which means he could between wardrobe fittings
and/or put on the jacket for the photo op.
Lou Sabini wrote: I agree with you, Tyler. If I'm not
mistaken, Stan doesn't wear a stand-up collar in THE DANCING
MASTERS or THE BIG NOISE, but Hardy looks a tad thinner in the
photo than he did in either of those films. I just looked at a
still from JITTERBUGS and Stan does wear his traditional stand-up
collar, so I will have to rule out that film. Hmmm. You might be
right the "wardrobe fittings" theory...Good guess...
Maybe we should count the candles on
