Bacon Grabbers is a 1929 silent comedy short starring Laurel and Hardy.


Repossession men Laurel and Hardy serve a summons to Mr. Kennedy, who has failed to pay the installments for his radio since 1921. They wind up destroying both their car and the radio, as Mrs. Kennedy returns home to announce she's just paid for the radio.


The title Bacon Grabbers is 1920s slang for a "repo men."

The movie was filmed at 2980 Haddington Drive and 10341 Bannockburn Drive in Cheviot Hills, Los Angeles.[1]
