Babes in Toyland Toasts



At every meeting we drink a toast to:


Stan Laurel

The creative genius of The Boys,
whose loose-limbed grace provides
many film highlights.
Oliver Hardy

Rotund Ollie sings with sweetness and delights
us all with his pompousness, especially as it
always is punctured.

Mae Busch

Mae is a great supporting actress, often a
wife, more often their foil.  She brings a
brashness to the screen that is memorable.
James Finlayson (Fin)

A supporting actor with great body language and
facial gymnastics, his squint and, "Doh!" make
him cherished by the Sons.


Charlie Hall

Charlie supports the Boys in varied roles,
most often calling for a smallish, put-upon,
but feisty character.
Al Kilgore

Al Kilgore is the creator of the offical Sons of the
Desert logo, and is fondly remembered.  The motto
means, "Two minds without a single thought."


TOAST FOR THE MONTH: To Charley Hall

With eyes that bugged
And mustache that was fake,
He became a master of the double take.
Long live Finlayson,
ONe of the kindest and funniest
Of Scottish men.
Thank Heaven Hal Roach
Slipped the Boys a Fin!
