A Chump at OxfordRating: 3.7/5 (with 21 votes)
A Chump at Oxford, directed in 1939 by Alfred J. Goulding and released in 1940 by United Artists, was the penultimate Laurel and Hardy film made at the Hal Roach studios. Originally released as a streamliner featurette at forty minutes long, the original streamliner version was slightly reedited and twenty minutes of footage largely unrelated to the main plot were later added for European distribution and, ultimately, American distribution. A later reissue version was further reedited, jumping from Stan and Ollie's entrance into the employment agency to them sweeping the streets. A 20-minute version created for television distribution is entitled Alter Ego. The longer version is the one most often seen today. The title echoes the film A Yank at Oxford (1938). ()
