A compilation of primarly Laurel and Hardy shorts---From Soup to Nuts, Wrong Again, Putting the Pants on Philip, The Finishing Touch, Sugar Daddies and short clips from others---plus Max Davidson's Call of the Cuckoo and Dumb Daddies, with some cross-over Charley Chase footage, which, along with Robert Youngson's previous "The Golden Age of Comedy", "When Comedy Was King", "Days of Thrills and Laughter", led to a renewed interest in and a revival of television showings of Laurel and Hardy shorts. The cast was billed in order of their appearance: Oliver Hardy, Stan Laurel, Vivien Oakland (with a Vivian typo), Glen Tyron, Edna Murphy, Anita Garvin, Tiny Sanford, Jimmy Finlayson, Charlie Chase, Viola Richard, Max Davidson, Del Henderson, Josephine Crowell, Anders Randolf (as Anders Randolph), Edgar Kennedy, Dorothy Coburn, Lillian Elliott and "Spec" O'Donnell.

Did You Know?
There was so much prime material from Laurel and Hardy's silent shorts that Robert Youngson prepared a second compilation feature "The Further Perils of Laurel and Hardy" (1967). More Laurel and Hardy footage created a second follow up, "4 Clowns" (1970) (adding Buster Keaton and more footage of Charley Chase). These three compilations of Laurel and Hardy's silent comedy would be the final work for Robert Youngson who would pass away four years later. See more
