Born in the 1900s, the haunting and timeless comic antics of one of the greatest comedy film duos in history makes film fans laugh aloud more than fifty years after their last on-screen pairing.
Arthur Stanley Jefferson and Oliver Norvell Hardy both spent their boyhoods working in music halls. They were seasoned veterans by the time they appeared together in the silent film "The Lucky Dog." At the time, both of them were working as all- purpose comics at the Hal Roach Studios. Not until they were paired up did magic and stardom happen. Within a year of the daysthey created Ollie the childishly bossy man who barely tolerated his friend Stanley, the pair was on their way to legendary status. This DVD set spans more than 40 years of their lives in film.
