Product Description

Born in the 1900’s, 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why not do a proper job? June 11 2004
Format:DVD
Currently available through amazon.co.uk is a 21 DVD set of Laurel And Hardy - remastered with oodles of extras including colorized versions and running 3 hours or more for each DVD. Why isn't the collection (or a comparable one) available here?

5.0 out of 5 stars one question.. Nov. 19 2003
By ferrell
Format:DVD
how many times can they re-re-re-re-re-re(whew)re-release "flying deuces" and "utopia"?! don't get me wrong they are great movies but you can find it just about anywhere why won't these companies focus more on rare out of print stuff like "way out west" or "swiss miss",oh well I give this set 5 stars because it's a nice release and has "this is your life" which is worth getting by itself,"march of the wooden soldiers" is in glorius black and white and the sound of both "flying deuces" and "utopia" are great (although I can't say the same for the picture)I had these movies before and each version I got on d.v.d. you had to turn the volume up all the way to hear it,this set has a louder sound and you can hear the background stuff better which is cool the picture for both are scratchy,the last disc is the best because of the L&H trailers.I hope they do a vol2 box set with more (out of copywrite) releases like footage from the "u.k. tours" and "movie struck" and home video footage ,interviews ect if your going to get cheap d.v.d releases at least make it interesting (like the goodtime video releases)there are alot of stuff that has lost it's copywrite which could end up in the second volume!!NO MORE "FLYING DEUCES" AND "UTOPIA" PLEASE!!!

I don't know if the manufacturer will be fixing the problem at some point, but the "Flying Deuces" disc contained in this set is out of sync. I would suggest you buy a used copy at as much as a discount as you can get, then find the copy of "Flying Deuces" released by the company called Platinum (NOT Madacy-- their version is out of sync, too) or if you can't find that, the Alpha video release, and toss the "Flying Deuces" disc that comes in this set and replace it with one of the others (as I did). Other than that...
Two highlights of this set: "March of the Wooden Soldiers"-- it is in its original, glorious black and white form, includes MGM opening titles and features some scenes that are often missing from some prints (the Mother Goose prelude and the scene of Tom Tom and Bo-Peep drifting into slumber in Bogeyland as the dream fairies dance over their heads). The other highlight is a disc with about 25 minutes of trailers from various Laurel & Hardy films-- trailers are always fun. Haven't watched the rest of the disc all the way through yet but have sampled bits and pieces-- the "Utopia" print looks avereage, and strangely has opening titles that say "Hal Roach Presents" and has stock Laurel & Hardy background music, even though the original version didn't have this. The "This is Your Life" TV show is a print of varying quality. Haven't looked at the shorts, "Be Big" and "Lucky Dog" at all yet. But this is definitely worth it for "Wooden Soldiers" and the trailers if you can pay less than retail and don't mind chucking the "Flying Deuces" disc and replacing it with another one. Otherwise, please refer to my other reviews below for more details on the contents.

3.0 out of 5 stars Supplemental Laurel & Hardy June 23 2003
Format:DVD
Other reviewers are wondering where all the classic Laurel & Hardy features and shorts are in this collection, and there is a good reason they are not represented: the films in this collection are films that have fallen into "the public domain," which means they are free for any manufacturer to release. For those who want what are considered the cream of the crop, there is also a set from Artisan (either one or two discs) called simply, "Laurel & Hardy" that includes one of their all-time best features, "Sons of the Desert" along with four timeless shorts: the Oscar-winning "The Music Box," "Another Fine Mess," "County Hospital" and "Busy Bodies." This collection is also available from Amazon. As to the contents of the "Laurel & Hardy Collection" 5-disc set:
"March of the Wooden Soldiers" is the beloved comic operetta that was originally titled "Babes in Toyland." Bumbling Ollie Dee and Stannie Dumm must somehow save the citizens of Toyland from the evil Silas Barnaby and his horrible Bogeymen. Delightful Christmas fantasy, classic Laurel & Hardy humor and the darker edges of the fairy tale world collide to make this a time-treasured favorite.
"The Flying Deuces": the only independent film "the boys" made. It has received mixed reviews over the years, but this reviewer feels it has a lot of charm and many of the hallmarks of their classic films. The boys join the foreign legion so heartbroken Ollie can forget the love of his life. A series of of comical complications end with the boys in the air in a runaway plane they don't know how to fly!
"Utopia": their final film, originally titled "Atoll K.
