Still Very Funny
20 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two nights ago, I saw this film at the Old Town Music Hall in El Segundo, California. The theater was filled with college students who were there for an extra credit assignment. It can pretty safely be assumed that none of them had seen this film before, and probably have seen very little of Laurel and Hardy.

The point of all this is that this film got big laughs from this audience. All the way through. As a huge Laurel and Hardy fan myself, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing this early example of their work being so appreciated by a modern audience. Just goes to show, funny is always funny regardless of time and place.
