Although extremely short, "White Wings" has to be my favourite Stan Laurel comedy. It is not entirely original and features many gags common in silent films, but they are used well and keep the watcher entertained. I have not seen that many Stan Laurel's movies, but I notice that he is extremely different to the 'Stan' from the Laurel and Hardy films. In this film Stan is a mischievous street cleaner, who ends up dressing up in many different costumes. Sadly this short is difficult to buy on DVD in the UK and my edition suffers from xtremely poor picture quality. The The greatest scene is possibly when Stan imitates a statue in a attempt to escape the law. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys silent comedies.
