45 Minutes From Hollywood (1926) is an American two-reel silent film released by Pathé Exchange.[1]

At the time, it was known as a Glenn Tryon vehicle, but today it is best remembered as the second instance of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy appearing in the same film together — although they do not share any scenes — at least half a decade after their first chance billing in The Lucky Dog (1921).

Since this film uses footage from the Theda Bara star vehicle Madame Mystery (released April 1926), it is also the last screen appearance of silent film vamp Bara.

Cast[edit]

Description[edit]

Stan appears in bed in his only scene. He wears a night cap, nightgown, and a large comedy mustache. Jimmy Finlayson appears looking like this in several later Laurel and Hardy films. Oliver also features a similar mustache. Laurel's name does not appear in the credits for this film, but Hardy's name does.
