So, when will some American distributor begin releasing the Laurel and Hardy shorts/features individually or in boxed sets. I know you can get them in Europe. What U.S. studio owns the rights? And who could we barrage with e-mails to get them to consider releasing The Boys on DVD.

Busy Bodies, Double Whoopie, Hog Wild, Dirty Work, The Finishing Touch, The Music Box, Hats Off... I could go on, and it goes without saying that I am a huge fan of Laurel and Hardy. One thing I am sure of, as time goes by, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy will still capture the hearts of the World over with their comedy even when others have been forgotten they shall never be.

Hi to all fans of the kings of slapstick. Can anyone enlighten me as to which film Stan and Ollie are blackmailed into breaking into the police commissioners house over a high garden wall? The antics of the guys was pure magic!!

Hello fellow Laurel & Hardy fanatics,
I am in the US and I'm looking for the most complete collection of their shorts, specifically the ones from Hal Roach Studios. I remember watching them on Saturday mornings I think on the TCM channel. Where can I purchase a DVD collection containing all of these memorable films? I see there is a 21 disk collector set but for some odd reason is only offered in Region 2 format. Thanks for any help!

To all fans out there, if you are in the uk between the 1st july 2009 and the 18th july 2009. there is a Laurel & Hardy play, showing in the Jermyn Street theatre, london just off piccadilly london, I went to see this when it toured the S/E of england. I would highly recommend it. The 2 actors who play Laurel & Hardy are by far the best representation I have ever seen. It was like watching the real Laurel & Hardy in the flesh.
You can get tickets via : www.jermynstreettheatre.co.uk or tel : +44 2072872875
The play is set as Laurel & Hardy are trapped between this world and the next, Stan & Oliver pass their time in limbo, reprising old comedy routines, swapping gags, bickering and making up. they will only earn their passage to the other side by undertaking an emotional journey through their personal lives and screen careers: But are they prepared to re-live the bad times as well as the good?
If you do go enjoy!!!

I have loved Laural and Hardy since I was a child. I have seen most of their film and shorts and have always found them funny. My favourite feature film by them would have to be "Way Out West" and favouriite short by them is "The Music Box".

i have for as long as i can remember been a fan of stan and ollies, and so too are my daughters, and i hope their children. these two giants of comedy are owed so much by the world of comedy, and their obvious respect and love for each other is a shining example to us all. i would give my right arm to have been given the chance just to talk to them and tell them personally how much i love and admire them. long let their memory live on.
Does anyone know which short or film has the gag when Stan wriggles his ears? Thanks!
Stan Laurel wiggles his ears most prominently in A CHUMP AT OXFORD.
