Catching colds with Laurel and Hardy
2 July 2003 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen many of the Laurel and Hardy shorts, but I was up in time this morning to catch this one. It is a diamond to behold. Oliver Hardy has the cold and Stan Laurel tries to cure him with his bumbling antics. By the end they have the bed up to the ceiling!

These shorts are very funny. If you haven't seen them yet, do so!
