You ever have one of those days where you have things that need to get done, but you say, “You know, I think I’ll spend 20 minutes photoshopping the eyes and nose of Norma Shearer onto a portrait of Marie Antoinette instead!”?

The Stolen Jools is a 1931 short comedy film produced by the Masquers Club of Hollywood, featuring many cameo appearances by the film stars of the day. They appeared in the film to help raise funds for the National Variety Artists Tuberculosis Sanitarium.
When the film was shown in theaters in 1931, a person would appear after the film to ask the audience for donations. Because the film was made for charity, it has an unusually large cast of actors from different studios, such as Warner Bros., RKO, MGM, Paramount Pictures, and Hal Roach Studios.
