Great L&H compilation - but that narration!
27 May 1999 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

Some of Laurel and Hardy's best silent shorts are edited together with some Charley Chase and Max Davidson films to create a very entertaining film.

But why that irksome and sentimental narration - and the hideous sound effects, including vocal effects? They are distracting and often nauseating. These were silent films - just music please!

But the films themselves are pure genius. Max Davidson is a particular revelation - a very fine comedian. I'd like to see all of "Call of the Cuckoo".

Don't miss this show - but maybe turn the sound down and play some of your own music.
