Saturday Newsreel: The Stars Arrive

Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Taylor, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy chat with reporters as the Queen Elizabeth approaches the shores of Southampton. (I can't believe Taylor has to maintain that teeny little mustache while on vacation; what a drag.)


  1. Thank you KC. My wife and I are long time Cunarders as well as lifetime film enthusiasts. Aside from the delight of seeing and hearing Stanwyck and the amusing bit of business by Laurel and Hardy, it was great to get the briefest glimpse of the original Queen Elizabeth, soon to be in its third iteration.

  2. That was great, I love to see old interviews with classic stars. Thank u.

  3. I'm glad you liked the clip Gordon and Clara! I'd love to see more of these shipboard interviews with classic stars. There must be a lot of great footage out there.
