L & H in the Army
26 February 2005 | by BJJ-2See all my reviews

Pre-team Laurel and Hardy silent,with Stan as an effeminate private,being bullied by Sergeant Banner(Ollie)and General James Finlayson.There is virtually no plot,and a lot of the humour on show is of a surprisingly vulgar,broad nature,involving putrid garlic and swollen posteriors,amongst others.Again,the boys are cast as enemies rather than friends,though Ollie's behaviour towards Stan is slightly friendlier in the second reel.Bizarrely(and pointlessly),a poster of Cecil B.De Mille's film THE VOLGA BOATMAN(1926)is used for a gag later in the film.They weren't a team yet,but would be in several films'time when they would be shoulder-to-shoulder buddies.
