Product Description

Another collection of Laurel and Hardy classics. The feature-length 'Saps at Sea' (the duo's last film for Hal Roach) sees Ollie develop a new allergy to the sound of horns - and Stan's trombone playing is not helping. Also included are: 'You're Darn Tootin'; and 'Below Zero', which is presented in both its original and its rare Spanish-language edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horn-A-Mania! 18 Jun 2004
What can I say...this L&H classic is one of my alltime favourites. Unfortunately, my wage packet was rather tight this month and I could only afford one Laurel & Hardy DVD from this newly released collection. I chose 'Saps at Sea' and wasn't disappointed...and neither will you be!
First, a brief synopsis for those who havn't seen this one hour film. Stan and Ollie are working in a horn testing factory. However, the constant noise and irritation brings Olly down with an extreme case of 'Horn-o-phobia', turning him into an uncontrollable violent maniac whenever he hears any sort of horn.
After unsuccessful attempts to recover at home (which involve usual L&H chaos including a unique music lesson, an encounter with a cross eyed plumber and Stan's destruction of their apartment lobby), Ollie take's his doctors advice (the legendary 'Fin') and decides to live on a dock-tied boat, in order to benefit from the sea air.
Unfortunately the boat doesn't stay tied to the dock for long, and ends up drifing far out to sea...with the presence of escaped convict "Nick". With the boys at the mercy of this violent killer, it's a case of keeping him happy until help arrives. And if you think THAT goes according to plan, you really need to watch more L&H!!!
The DVD presentation is wonderful..it is the clearest picture I have ever seen for one of these classics, and the sound enjoys excellent restoration also. Not bad for a movie made approximately sixty years ago! There are some good extras on here, including "Below Zero" when our heros try their luck at busking.
There is also the option of watching the movies in glorious B&W or even the computerized colour versions that were created in the early 1990s. Plus a Spanish version of 'Below Zero' and a silent movie are thrown in for good measure.
A great movie, wonderful presentation. If you're having one of those days when its raining outside and you feel low...spend an hour with the boys..you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Horns! 25 July 2004
Like all the Laurel and Hardy discs in this series, this DVD presents some of their best work in top-quality restored versions. The main feature, though, isn't the best thing on it -'Saps at Sea' was Laurel and Hardy's last production for the Hal Roach studios, is largely a rehash of earlier work and plays like an extended short rather than a genuine feature, but it's still highly entertaining, and features an inspired cameo by Ben Turpin. The silent short, 'You're Darn Tootin', is a beatifully restored print of one of their earliest films as a team, but the main reason for buying this disc must be 'Below Zero', presented here in three different versions. (This is the film where they are scraping a living as street musicians in a rough neighbourhood in the depths of winter.) The regular version, once again, is a pristine print, but of even greater interest is the Spanish version, which includes extra scenes that enrich some of the gags and flesh out the story a little. It's fascinating to watch the boys speaking their own dialogue in Spanish. (In the early days of sound movies, before dubbing, it was common practice to make foreign-language version of films in parallel with the English versions.) It's curious that many of their films exist in longer versions in other languages. My only complaint is that, since many of the dialogue scenes in the Spanish version don't appear in the English one, one would think that subtitles would not have been asking too much.
The low point of the disc is the colourised version of Below Zero. Like all the colourised films on these discs the image quality is distinctly poorer, and this one suffers from about five minutes of inexplicable cuts. Otherwise, this is another fine disc they've gotten themselves onto.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN ABSOLUTE HOOT!!! 12 Jun 2006
By Duncan
OK - excuse the pun, but this is an absolute gem!! This really is slapstick at its best, combined with a good storyline. It's a bargain and a must for any comedy collection!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Saps At Sea! 30 Jan 2013
By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER
This volume 11 DVD, that I have as part of complete "Collection" features the wonderful Saps At Sea as its main feature.

There's everything in this near-hour little gem - all the trademark L&H best bits of comedy that make up the brilliance of the best comedy duo in cinema history.

There's an extraordinary and brilliant marriage of sound effect and visual gag as Stan & Laurel bumble their way through eating, falling about and breaking things. It's one their most consistently hilarious and entertaining features, both the writing and performances are at their best.

A little Short at the end of the disc, Your Darn Tootin', that my old Halliwells film guide awarded four stars to (their maximum and seldom given rating) but I could never find it, anywhere. This one actually follows the theme of the disc - 'horns' (Saps At Sea is initially and largely set in a car-horn assembly plant) and has the duo playing various woodwind instruments in a spritely and comedic manner, on the streets. The accompaniment we hear is that of a sort of sort of wurlitzer organ, all breathless and a bit manic. Not sure if I found it as good as Halliwells did but was an enjoyable distraction and was a bit different.

A couple of other minor shorts, that are run-of-the-mill complete this better than most L&H volumes. As with all these volumes, some have a computer enhanced colour option as well as the original, standard black & white. Some, especially, I guess, the purists, won't like these whilst I'm sure many find them a good and living new way of seeing their old favourites - in my opinion, some work better than others and so, as ever, it's down to what you like yourself - but it's good to have the option.
