Laurel and Hardy Poster “Les Chevaliers de la Flème” 1951 AP421

Of course they made a French film. Didn’t you know? Didn’t turn out too good. But let’s not be gloomy. This is RARE. And it’s their last movie together. Maybe it’s not so terrible.

Known in English as  “Utopia” (U.S.), and “Atoll K” in the UK, “Les Chevaliers de la Flème” certainly demonstrates the reverence shown to the boys world-wide. The other actors are all French and therefore dubbed in the English versions. In this one we have to assume Laurel and Hardy are.

And the poster is GORGEOUS. On linen backing.

47″ x 63″.

Price on request.

I think a closer translation of the French title might have been “Knights of The Hammock”:

Heading for a newly inherited island, the boys are shipwrecked and marooned on an atoll which has just emerged from the sea. Along with their cook, a stowaway and a girl who is fleeing her fiancé, they set up their own government on the atoll. Uranium is discovered and world powers begin fighting over ownership of the island.
