The house used for exteriors in the Laurel and Hardy short Big Business is located on Dunleer Drive in Los Angeles. By 1929 Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy had made over twenty shorts together in the two years they had been working as a team. They frequently shot in and around the Culver City area, close to their home base at the Hal Roach Studios. They took to the streets of Cheviot Hills at this film location for their 1929 short Big Business. In the film the boys are Christmas tree salesmen, in July, trying to convince obstinant James Finlayson, who lived in this house, to buy a tree. He refused. The boys pressed the issue. Calamity ensued.
