The main feature here is nowhere near L&H at their best; it sees them in a period of transition, looking for a wider appeal via pointless musical numbers, pointless romance and pointless interaction with animals. `I've seen the seven wonders of the world and yet / I can't get over the Alps!' They don't write `em like that any more. The boys' personae and routines are becoming more childish, leaving behind the bleak realistic world of their Depression films.
Nevertheless I like it, full as it is of endearing oddments like the St Bernard `rescue' scene and Ollie's tuba-accompanied serenade `Let Me Call You Sweetheart' (the chimp & piano set piece, though, is frankly tedious). If you're a fan, you'll enjoy it.
The shorts are nothing wonderful either - in fact `Flying Elephants' is not really a Laurel & Hardy film at all, but a prehistoric oddity filled with seductive flappers in cavegirl costume. At this price, though, you can't really grumble.
