‘A Chump at Oxford’


Thursday brings the final movie in my “College Daze” series of campus comedies at the Ovitt Family Adjective Community Adjective Library (215 E. C St., Ontario): “A Chump at Oxford.”

This 1940 Laurel and Hardy movie features the usual dimwitted behavior and slapstick antics as you’d expect as the fat-and-thin duo head off to England for a real education.

The movie starts at 6:30 p.m. on the dot. Entry is free. Hope to see some of you there.

Here’s a link to the movie’s Wikipedia page (the synopsis gives away the entire plot of the movie, so be careful). And below is the trailer.

    One of my favorite lines from this film comes in this exchange:

    Student: Pardon me sir, but haven’t you come to the wrong college?

    Ollie: This is Oxford isn’t it?

    Student: Yes but, you’re dressed for Eton

    Stan: Just as well, we haven’t eaten since breakfast.

    Reminds me, time for breakfast. Am I dressed appropriately?

    [Yeah, I love that exchange too! — DA]
