Product Description

In their first starring feature away from the Hal Roach studios, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy play a couple of fish peddlers from Des Moines on a cook's tour of Paris. While stopping over at a quaint inn, Ollie falls in love with the innkeeper's daughter, Georgette (Jean Parker). At Stan's prodding, Ollie pops the question to Georgette, who gently refuses because there is someone else. Disconsolately, Ollie decides to commit suicide by jumping into the Seine, insisting that Stan join him in his plunge to oblivion. Our heroes are halted from this drastic action by the timely arrival of Francois (Reginald Gardiner), an officer in the French Foreign Legion. Francois convinces Stan and Ollie that they'll forget all about Ollie's lost love if they join the Legion, and within a few days our heroes are in uniform at an outpost in French Morocco. Alas, try as he might, Ollie cannot forget his beloved Georgette. After fleeing from the Legion, Ollie is reunited with Georgette, who turns out to be the wife of their commanding officer Francois! Sentenced to death for desertion, the boys tunnel their way out of their jail cell and hide out in an aeroplane, which Stan accidentally sends into flight. After a wild and noisy ride, the plane crashes, leading to the film's hilarious, and somehow touching, ""freak"" ending. Officially a remake of Les Aviateurs, a French vehicle for Fernandel and Toto, The Flying Deuces also owes a lot to the earlier Laurel & Hardy Foreign Legion farce, Beau Hunks. Highlights include Stan and Ollie's impromptu soft-shoe rendition of ""Shine on Harvest Moon"".

2.0 out of 5 stars Great film, poor quality picture. 29 July 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The plot and the comedy are top class but the picture quality is nowhere near the standard of the Laurel and Hardy box set, it is pretty poor. I nearly used another word, funnily enough also starting with the letter `p`. I don`t know where the deluxe bit comes into it, unless they mean it was washed in Lux. Older readers will know what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flying Deuces 25 Oct 2008
A classic Laurel and Hardy film from 1931.

Stan and Ollie join the French Foreign Legion so Ollie can forget his lost love, thus begins one of the hapless duos most entertaining films.

I won't give more of the plot away - recommended to all lovers of vintage comedy. Superb value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 30 Jan 2005
By Adam Gonnerman - Published on
Growing up in the Midwest United States in the 80's, every so often we had a school movie day with old films projected on the gymnasium wall for all grades to see. Everyone's favorite was anything involving Laurel and Hardy.

"The Flying Deuces" is a classic. Silly and poorly made by today's standards, it is still a fun romp if you take it at face value and don't treat it too analytically.

This edition of "The Flying Deuces" is readily available at most Wal-Marts for only a dollar. Hardly a risky investment.
