Veteran character actors Richard Lane and Jay Novello join Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel (who signed this photo in 1964) to play a scene from THE BULLFIGHTERS.

Lane himself was part of comedy team, Schilling Lane, who made two-reelers for Columbia Pictures during the years 1945 through 1950. Photo courtesy Twentieth Century-Fox.
