Storyline

Bronson Pinchot does a nice job imitating Stan Laurel and Gailard Sartain gives a good appearance as Oliver Hardy, but the imitation does not extend to the original duo's comedy. The silly story line finds the two trying to protect a professor's daughter from a mummy that has been re-born. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Isn't it a tad odd that a L&H remake would use a plot that is so typically Abbott & Costello?

Yeah, the story is absolute crap, but the two leads really ARE dead ringers for the original duo. My one beef with their very decent mimicry is that Hardy only gives one trademark reaction look of frustration at the audience.

This thing is by NO means great, but it's definitely worth a look.
