James Henderson Finlayson was a wonderful comic foil to stars like Laurel and Hardy, Ben Turpin, and many more.
This publicity movie still is taken from the 1933 Hal Roach Laurel and Hardy film, "The Devil's Brother", HR F3 42. The photo captures the loo!k he had made famous
It is based on Daniel Auber's operetta "Fra Diavolo" about the Italian bandit Fra Diavolo. Yes, there is singing in this film!
The photo measures 8" x 10" and has a glossy finish on photo stock. It is a truly wonderful photo.

My collection contains many still shots of the Silent Screen era's actors.
This is an original photograph, not a copy. The phrase "From the collection of..., linarajar and private collection photo " are NOT on the original photograph.
