Zeb vs. Paprika is a 1924 silent comedy film starring Stan Laurel.[1] The film is a parody of the classic horse racing event on October 20, 1923, between American Kentucky Derby winner Zev and British Derby winner Papyrus, which attracted a crowd estimated at close to 50,000 people.[2] It appears Dippy Donawho, Stan Laurel's character, wins a race against his American rival – until the two men learn they were riding each other's horses.
