Great Guns

Great Guns is a 1941 film directed by Monty Banks, and produced by Sol M. Wurtzel for 20th Century Fox starring Laurel and Hardy.


Pampered young millionaire Dan Forrester joins the army, helped and hindered by his two henchmen, Stan and Ollie. While there, he also falls in love with a woman who runs a photography store, and Laurel and Hardy also emerge triumphant after some mock war manoeuvres.


  • The first of Laurel and Hardy's post-Hal Roach features, Great Guns is generally regarded as the start of the team's decline, since they were given unsuitable, out-of-character scripts to work with, and very little artistic freedom behind the camera. At Hal Roach Studios, Stan Laurel looked on such creativity behind as well as in front of the camera as routine, but Twentieth Century Fox did not allow such luxuries. Allegedly, Stan Laurel is said to have been ashamed of the team's films at Fox and MGM in later life.
  • Future film star Alan Ladd appears briefly as a photo store customer; he however does not share any scenes with Laurel and Hardy.
