  • This was the first comedy that Laurel and Hardy starred in without producer Hal Roach, although they had previously been "guest stars" in four MGM movies. After they finished making "The Flying Deuces," they returned to Hal Roach Studios to make films. In order to make this movie, producer Boris Morros bought the rights to the 1931 French film "Les deux legionnaires," which had a similar plot. "The Flying Deuces" was Morros' first independent production and it was shot in continuity over a span of four weeks. Only one day was reportedly needed for retakes. The French original starred Fernandel and Noel Noel. The stars, cameraman and director all accepted a minimum salary in return for a share of the film's profits. Filmed on location at the Van Nuys Airport and Chatsworth, California. During the filming, Oliver Hardy met script clerk Virginia Lucille Jones, who became his third wife in 1940. Additional cast: Clem Wilenchick (Corporal); Kit Guard, Billy Eagle and Jack Chefe (Legionnaires); Richard Cramer (Truck Driver); Sam Lufkin and Eddie Borden (Legionnaires Knocked Out by Corks); Frank Clarke (Pilot); Michael Visaroff (Innkeeper); and Monica Bannister, Bonnie Bannon, Mary Jane Carey and Christine Cabanne (Georgette's Girl Friends). Additional credits: Robert Stillman and Johnny London (assistant directors); Rudolph Mat (production adviser); and Frank Clarke (chief pilot and technical adviser). The working title for the films was "The Aviators."
