At last a DVD boxset available in the UK containing nearly all the Hal Roach classics from 1926-1940.
Packing is fantastic with silver lettering complementing the black and white drawings of L&H. Each disc has a 3-4 page leaflet with production notes and photos.
20 DVDs of classic shorts and feature films plus a bonus disc containing the rarely seen original 1930s version of Brats and the 1991 documentary.
The B&W versions are the newly restored prints, which are the same as the renowned German Kinowelt series. Also included are colour versions, which although derided by film buffs and L&H historians are not as bad as has been said. Sure the clarity is not as high on the colour versions but some are fine and are certainly not a waste of disc space as has been suggested.
For completists this set is missing the feature films Fra Viavolo, Bonnie Scotland and Flying Dueces and Babes in Toyland. But the 3 of these are I think owned by MGM and did not appear on the Kinowelt boxsets either. Whilst babes in Toyland is far from a L&H classic and is mostly one good scene with musical filler material. If you want to argue that the boxset is not complete then you might as well complain that it contains none of their 1941 -1 954 features.
As it is what you get here is all the material that's worth having in a great package with a documentary bonus disc and rare foreign language versions of Murder Case, Blotto, Laughing Gravy and more which because L&H performed these phonetically contain slightly different scenes from the English spoken ones.

As an American, I purchased a region-free DVD player for two specific purposes: to attain "The Comic Strip Presents Complete" and this set. Only a handful of Laurel & Hardy films are available on DVD stateside. Half of those are the cinematic abominations produced at MGM and 20th Century Fox in the '40s and the other half are poorly-transferred television edits of some of the films you'll find here. However, the movies HERE have been beautifully restored and are presented uncut. THIS is the collection you want/need. The films are silent and sound shorts produced at the Hal Roach Studios throughout the '20s and '30s and they are as hilarious today as they were then. There a few minor omissions (films in the public domain which are also available in decent versions on DVD - namely "The Devil's Brother" and "Bonnie Scotland"). If you love comedy, do yourself a favor and but this immediately. Universal did this up right!

At last a collection of Laurel and Hardy's sound films. The picture and sound quality are good, a couple of the short films are a little dark but that is OK.
I am happy to see that most of the films have their original title cards and in some cases studio logo.
Now, all we need is Warner Brothers who own the rights to BONNIE SCOTLAND, PICK A STAR and DEVIL'S BROTHER and a couple of later MGM pictures to open their vaults along with Twentieth Century Fox.

This box set is the best collection of films ever to be released on DVD, and really deserves ten stars it is that good.
Being a life long fan I purchased both the original video series by Virgin video and the re-mastered Vision video's a few years later. While the re-mastered editions editions had excellent picture quality the VHS format did not really do them justice. The DVD transfer however makes most of the films look pristine, and it is hard to believe that some of these films are over seventy years old given their picture quality. The sound, particularly on the silents with their stero sound track played by the Dutch band 'Beau Hunks' is truly outstanding. Also the sound on the talkies has been cleaned up to give the best sound quality available.
Why is the set so good?. The simple reason is that with the exception of the features 'Bonnie Scotland', 'The Devils Brother' and 'Babes in Toyland', this box set contains all the Laurel and Hardy starring shorts/features produced by Hal Roach, and that means the very best of Laurel and Hardy. Laurel and Hardy only ever approached the same artistic quality they achieved on one feature away from Hal Roach 'The Flying Deuces'.
As well as the classic films the set has a number of special features such as foreign language and colourised editions. The foreign language editions are worth watching because they are often longer, featuring additional scenes, different casts and best of all Laurel and Hardy actually speaking French, German or Spanish. A lot has been written about the colourised versions, while it is not up to the quality seen in 'Babes in Toyland', it is not really that bad. The only really bad thing about them is that being made for American TV they have a number of annoying scene cuts.

Just be aware that this is the 'new' version of the boxset. You dont get any of the booklets inside the boxes and the boxes are a cheap black plastic instead of white.

The RRP on this new cheaper set is 99.99 NOT 199.99 as stated on here.

You still get all the films of course but you dont get the info booklets.

Still a bargain if your not bothered about the books.
