The rope attached to the girder is at first looped around it but in the next shot it's just draped over it. See more »
The original print of this film is probably lost. The available version is a Film Classics reissue with credits replaced (and with one name misspelled). The quality of the images changes throughout the entire film because most of it is lifted from a Robert Youngson compilation. See more »
This is the film from Laurel and Hardy's silent days where they escape from prison, end up wearing each other's trousers, and finally are in danger stranded on steel girders high above ground. This sequence is a particular delight and unusual for the pair as it is more in Buster Keaton or Harold Lloyd territory; here we see Stan and Ollie trying to get back to safety in a variety of amusing ways.
A very funny film which needs no dialogue and a minimum of title cards, 'Liberty' is probably their best effort before they went into sound. Sight gags, a range of funny situations, and perfect playing from the leads put this into a high class of comedy. Hugely enjoyable.
