A great Robert Youngson compilation!
29 September 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

THE FURTHER PERILS OF LAUREL AND HARDY (1967) was released in September 2001 on video (PAL format) in the UK by Orbit Media. This film is a compilation by Robert Youngson that looks at the rise to comic greatness of the world's favourite comedy duo during the period before they entered the talkies.

The film includes examples of the duo's solo work with clips from an early Stan Laurel one-reeler JUST RAMBLING ALONG(1918), and clips from three Billy West shorts from 1917-8 that Babe Hardy appeared in. These are THE VILLAIN, THE HOBO and HIS DAY OUT.

The film contains excerpts from many of L&H's silent shorts. These include FLYING ELEPHANTS, SUGAR DADDIES, DO DETECTIVES THINK?, THE SECOND HUNDRED YEARS, LEAVE ‘EM LAUGHING, YOU'RE DARN TOOTIN', HABEAS CORPUS, THAT'S MY WIFE, ANGORA LOVE, SHOULD MARRIED MEN GO HOME?, and EARLY TO BED.

For me one of the highlights of this compilation is a seven-minute excerpt from a classic Charley Chase film THE WAY OF ALL PANTS(1927), in which he loses his trousers. There are also some Snub Pollard clips, and a brief look at a Jean Harlow film THE UNKISSED MAN(1929), in which she causes Bryant Washburn's blood pressure to pop.

A great compilation film from Robert Youngson!
