The Devil's Brother is a musical comedy released in 1933 and directed by Hal Roach and Charley Rogers. Bumbling bandits Stanlio (Stan Laurel) and Ollio (Oliver Hardy) try to pull off a major heist against notorious criminal Fra Diavolo (Dennis King). When the heist goes awry, Diavolo catches the malingering pair and pressures them to join his entourage. The group soon arrives at the Tavern de Cucu, where Stanlio and Ollio distract the staff as Fra Diavolo steals cash and jewels from the wealthy Lord Rocburg (James Finlayson). When Diavolo's return is delayed by a romantic encounter with the stunning Lady Pamela (Thelma Todd), his incompetent sidekicks struggle to keep the innkeeper and his staff occupied. Eventually, the two grow extremely drunk on the tavern's wine and blow the cover off of the operation. Now they must elude the legal authorities if they want to keep their lives. The Devil's Brother is a hilarious film and a classic in the canon of slapstick comedy.moreless
