A Fun Hysterical Time!
21 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stan Laurel has always been one of my favorite comedians, and so I decided to see some of his shorts from his silent era before he joined up with Oliver Hardy. So I got to see this short on a collection of Laurel and Hardy shorts, in my opinion, this is a fun hysterical time! Stan Laurel is in top shape for this really hysterical short film from the year of 1923! This is Stan Laurel's best short of his solo career without Hardy, as well as his best of 1923! Stan Laurel was really great with Hardy, and he was also really great in his solo career! I just plain love Stan Laurel, mainly because he is hysterical and very lovable!

This short is really a fruitful time that is going to leave you paralyzed with laughter! And when I saw that you are going to be paralyzed with laughter, I really mean that you are going to be paralyzed with laughter! If you watch this short, you are going to be laughing and laughing away! You are going to love this, I hope you see it!

This is one of the funniest silent shorts that I have ever seen in my entire life, and that is saying quite a lot because I have seen a lot of really funny silent shorts! If you have not seen this short yet, then you should see it, because you are really going to be laughing and laughing a lot!

10/10
