LITTLE RASCALS IN COLOR BOX SET
You may recall that LEGEND FILMS did a superb job with the restoration and colorisation of 'March of the Wooden Soldiers', following their success with their THREE STOOGES range, LEGEND have now turned their attention to the 'LITTLE RASCALS'. These are of course of interest to 'Laurel and Hardy' buffs as many of the films share the same stock company players and indeed even the music, plus they are very entertaining. One of my personal highlights was meeting Spanky McFarland at a USA Convention. Another our gang favourite Dorothy DeBorba has attended our HELPMATES events in the past.

Watching these fifteen shorts in restored colour adds another dimension, but for purists you also get the original Black and White versions. However, it the whole host of extras that add even more to this set including, THE STOLEN JOOLS (with Laurel and Hardy), Spankys home movies, trailers and much, much more.

Best of Our Gang - Spanky, Buckwheat, Porky at their hilarious best in their adventures with haunted houses, homemade fire engines, and the "Wild Man of Borneo". Best of Spanky - Spanky and his friends discover magic lamp, play mud football, and put on a musical dressed as girls! Superstars of Our Gang - The Little Rascals scare off their teacher's suitor, take a crazy cab ride and strike an unusual deal with a toy store owner - until Pete the dog destroys his shop!

We now include REGION ONE as well as REGION ZERO DVDS on this page.

The Oliver Hardy CollectionOliver Hardy Collection (1926)

1) THE SHOW (1922) Larry Semon - Ollie is a villainous stage manager & Larry is the prop manager. This has the classic Car chasing a train sequence. FIRST TIME FROM 35MM.

2) STICK AROUND (1925) Bobby Ray - Great! For the first time in DVD history we get to see the complete 25 minute film! All other DVDs present a soft, grainy 10 minute cut-down called 'Paperhangers Helper'. Now we get to see this classic Oliver Hardy-Bobby Ray teamed comedy with the horse-drawn delivery wagon battling a hill sequences intact (almost a decade before The Music Box). FIRST TIME FROM 35MM.

3) ALONG CAME AUNTIE (1926) - Ollie is a ridiculous musicial who must pretend to be married to his ex-wife so that she may inherit some diamonds.

4) CRAZY TO ACT (1927) Keystone - I believe this is the first time on DVD for this one. Ollie has little to do in this, he wants to marry an actress but the only way she will agree to it is if he produces a movie with her as the star. This is the weakest of the bunch on this DVD.

5) THE SAW MILL (1921) Larry Semon - Classic Semon comedy with Larry as a Logger and Ollie as the forman, both competing for the boss' daughter. FIRST TIME FROM 35MM.

6) SHOULD SAILORS MARRY? (19250 Clyde Cook - Clyde settles down with his new bride only to find the ex-husband still living at home.

7) HOP TO IT (1925) Bobby Ray - (aka Hop To It, Bellhop) - Another classic teaming of Ollie & Bobbie, this time as bell hops at a busy hotel. FIRST TIME FROM 35MM.

8) 45 MINUTES FROM HOLLYWOOD (1926) A hotel with Oliver Hardy as a detective and Stan Laurel as a cross-dressing thief. Their first apppearances in a Hal Roach Comedy, but individually.

I have lost count how many times I have been asked by USA members and visitors to our site asking for WAY OUT WEST on DVD. Well you wait will be over, as on March 15th 2005, HALLMARK (Lionsgate) are releasing another Laurel and Hardy DVD. It will contain ,Way Out West, Block-Heads and Chickens Come Home. You can pre order it now,just CLICK HERE for details or just add to the amazon cart with the link below:

RIDING HIGH

In 1950, Oliver Hardy made his final solo appearance without his partner, Stan Laurel. Bing Crosby was filming "Riding High", Frank Capra's remake of his own 1934 racetrack story "Broadway Bill". Bing was an old racetrack and golfcourse crony of Babe Hardy's, so when Bing's latest picture called for a perennial loser on the ponies, Babe seemed a natural choice – after all, it was a role Bing saw Babe play often in real life!

The Stan Laurel Collection (Slapstick Symposium) (1925)

Staln laurel CollectionBefore teaming up with Oliver Hardy, Stan Laurel was one of the most important Hollywood comics of his time, competing with the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Having been Chaplin's understudy and roommate, Laurel spent most of the 1910s avoiding actual demands to become a Chaplin lookalike. It was only in the 1920s that Stan laurel became established enough to capture the attention of producer Hal Roach and compete on equal terms with his mentor. The rare 16 short films (1923-1925) in this all-new DVD were finally restored to their original versions. All shot between 1923 and 1925, these films are a historic proof of Laurel's slapstick genius and a remarkable showcase of the intense work which allowed Lloyd to stand out in a time of great competition among hundreds of hopeful slapstick stars.

From the parodies of popular films from the 1920s ("Roughest Africa". "The Soilers") to the hilarious social satires ("Frozen Hearts", "Short Kilts") or the familial ones ("Mother's Joy", "Yes, Yes, Nanette") and ending with real jewels of silent comedy ("Oranges and Lemons", "Postage Due"), this British-born comedian charms, thanks to his understanding of storytelling and his irresistible humor. These 16 short films are gathered on DVD for the first time thanks to the help of collectors and film archives from around the world.

Roughest Africa(1923):

During an expedition in Africa, Stan is confronted by wild animals for the camera of a documentary filmmaker.

The Soilers(1923):

Canister (Stan Laurel), a mine owner in Alaska, would give his life to get his confiscated goods/property back.

Mother's Joy(1924):

An old man asks a lawyer to find his missing daughter and grand-son who turns out to be a very extravagant young man.

Postage Due(1924):

Willy Worst (Stan Laurel) turns a local post-office upside-down just by trying to send a letter.

The Sleuth(1925):

Stan is a detective who essentially relies on different costumes to successfully complete his investigations.

Yes, Yes, Nanette(1925):

Nanette comes home to introduce her husband to her family. Nanette's ex-fiance (Oliver Hardy) takes advantage of the situation to make a comeback in her life.

And the following titles:

Oranges and Lemons(1923), Frozen Hearts(1923), Near Dublin(1924), Zeb Vs Paprika(1924), Short Kilts(1924), West of Hot Dog(1924), The Snow Hawk(1925), Navy Blue Days(1925), Dr. Pyckle and Mr. Pryde(1925), Half a Man(1925).

The Charley Chase Collection (Slapstick Symposium) (1926)

harley Chase CollectionBringing a collection of seven 2-reeler comedies from the golden period of this acting/producer legend, the CHARLEY CHASE DVD is a fantastic introduction to the funny and frenetic world of Charley Chase and a rare chance to experience the work of one of the most influential short-film comedians of the late 1920s. The CHALEY CHASE DVD brings the following short films: MUM'S THE WORD (1926), APRIL FOOL (1926), CRAZY LIKE A FOX(1926), LONG FLIB THE KING (1923), MIGHTY LIKE A MOOSE (1926), and ALL WET (1924).

Chase discovered that by starting with a simple predicament that any average person could get into, the public could identify with him. Then, gradually, by building a once plausible situation into a fiascfiasco, he could take them to a riotous conclusion that is unbelievable, yet, somehow conceivable. Carefree, frivolous, wild and woolly, Charley Chase was the "Good Time Charlie" that we all wished we could be. Fortunately, due to film preservation, we still have him.

Hallmark have now released two Laurel and Hardy DVDS. This is their second release:

. This 2-disk DVD set includes "Sons of the Desert," "The Music Box," "Another Fine Mess," "Busy Bodies," "County Hospital" and many special features.

The Lost Films of Laurel and Hardy, Vol. 3

Six more rarely screened silent gems from the greatest comedy duo in movie history, highlighted by two shorts directed by Leo McCarey, who was behind the camera for most of the best films the team made in the silent era: Liberty (1929), in which the boys make an hilariously inept prison break, and We Faw Down (1928), in which Stan and Ollie sneak out for a poker game. In the Hal Roach-directed Love 'Em and Weep (1927), the duo is caught in the middle of a troubled romance. Also included is an early short, A Lucky Dog (Jess Robins, 1922), in which both comics appear, although it was made before they were working as a team. Ollie appears on his own in Along Came Auntie (1926), and backs up Charley Chase in Bromo and Juliet (1926). Each film was mastered from the best available 35mm material. 135 mins. $26.99

The Lost Films of Laurel and Hardy, Vol. 4

Six rarely seen films from film comedy's greatest duo. They Go Boom (James Parrott, 1929, 21 mins.) is one of the team's early sound pictures and the print on this disc is mastered from near-perfect 35mm nitrate stock with sound remastered from the original Vitaphone soundtrack discs. Their Purple Moment (James Parrott, 1928, 21 mins.) is an offering of superior slapstick, with the boys stuck in a nightclub without any money. Bacon Grabbers (Lewis R. Foster, 1929, 20 mins.) was the team's next-to-last silent film, although it was held back from release until music and sound effects were added. Should Sailors Marry? (Jess Robbins/James Parrott, 1925, 22 mins.) was actually a vehicle for vaudeville comedian Clyde Cook and Oliver Hardy has a supporting role. This rare film was digitally mastered from a safety fine grain made from the original nitrate camera negative. Unaccustomed As We Are (Lewis R. Foster/Hal Roach, 1929, 19 mins.) is the silent version of an L&H comedy that was released as both a sound and silent picture. Finally, On the Wrong Trek (Charley Chase/Harold Law, 1936, 20 mins.) is a late comedy short from Charley Chase, one of his last for Hal Roach. It features a guest appearance by Laurel and Hardy. The film has been digitally transferred from the original nitrate camera negative. 120 mins. $26.99

The Lost Films of Laurel and Hardy, Vol. 5

More vintage comedy shorts from the film world's most hilarious duo. Each film is presented in the best quality prints available and some are true rarities. Wrong Again (Leo McCarey, 1929, 20 mins.) is a silent gem with non-synchronous music and sound effects, in which the boys confuse a race horse for a famous painting. Habeas Corpus (James Parrott, 1929, 20 mins.), about the duo getting caught up in a grave-robbing scheme, is accompanied by its long-lost Vitaphone music track. Duck Soup (Fred Guiol, 1927, 20 mins.), is counted by some historians as the first "true" Laurel & Hardy film--in which they were both top billed and began perfecting their comic personas. Fluttering Hearts (Hal Roach, 1927, 22 mins.) is a Charley Chase comedy with Oliver Hardy in a supporting role. Leave 'Em Laughing (Clyde Bruckman, 1928, 22 mins.) features the team turning Stan's simple tooth-ache into a slapstick circus. The original color tints have been restored to the first reel of this short. Finally, Short Kilts (George Jeske, 1924, 21 mins.) showcases Stan on his own, in a laugh-fest about feuding Scottish families. It is restored from a fine-grain print taken from the original nitrate camera negative. 124 mins. $26.99

Then, a trip to the tailor is in store for Stan in Putting Pants on Philip (Clyde Bruckman, 1928). 45 Minutes from Hollywood (Fred Guiol, 1926) is a Hal Roach Studios "behind-the-scenes" look at the glamorous movie world, in which L&H make brief appearances. Crazy Like a Fox (Leo McCarey, 1926) is a Charley Chase short, with Oliver Hardy in support. Finally, The Soilers (1923) is a very rare short from Stan Laurel's days as a single act. 122 mins. $26.99
