Laurel And Hardy: Rare Home Movies

1041. LAUREL AND HARDY: RARE HOME MOVIES (1932-England). Laurel and Hardy as you’ve never seen them before! In these private scenes of their triumphant visits to Stan’s homeland, the greatest comedy team in history prove that they’re fust as delightful off screen as on! 1.GRAND HOTEL. The boys visit Stan’s native seaside village, Tynemouth, England, and charm the huge crowds of admirers with their famous antics. “It took Oliver Cromwell, with 10,000 cannons, 10 years to disarm Tynemoulh-Oliver Hardy did it in 10 seconds!” Includes a rare view of Hardy with his spectacles. Some of the silent scenes are accompanied by the duo’s voices, performing an amusing routine that was recorded during their visit to England. 2. STAN AND OLLIE. Laurel and Hardy tour Edinburgh, Scotland. After sightseeing at a castle, they’re again surrounded by throngs of worshipful fans, who fill a luxurious movie palace to see them in person. In a bizarre sequence, an army of uniformed ushers perform their duties with utmost solemnity, while the soundtrack provides a wild counterpoint: a “dance version” of L&H’s immortal theme music, “The Dance of the Cuckoos.” Onstage, Laurel cries, Ollie wiggles his tie, the two playfully hit each other, and show their mutual affection. Beguiling behind-the-scenes glimpses of two of the screen’s favorite personalities. Caution-these are truly home movies, the pictorial quality varies from scene to scene. “Silent” films with music score, correct projection speed. 29 minutes total. Home Movies
