I agree, black and white is much better.

Recently watched Beau Hunks and The Flying Dueces

Both okay

But essentially the same flipping film!

Why did they bother?

All comedy distils down to the same basic building blocks.

I have posted this before on here (and it was deleted by YouTube)
It's a 'silent' from their early days and you can see they were young men.

Stan and Ollie escape from prison and are chased by the police... ending up on the top of a skyscraper that is still being built.

It is funny from the start but gets funnier and funnier until you have tears in your eyes......

Feeling a little down today?....

Watch Liberty (you won't after)

All the Hal Roach stuff, silent and talkies, B&W and colourized versions, even has some of their foreign language films.

Took a while to get through all 21 discs, but well worth it, my favourite box set I own.

Masters of Comedy. :)

Agread. An article from the Telegraph talking about a new Laurel and Hardy project. Not so many doing the physical comedy since Mr Bean and Lee Evans have retired. Miranda Hart maybe. Now there's a woman that knows how to fall over.
