A great ensemble with the Boys

This dvd contains several short films starring Laurel and Hardy, and some of them are available both in black and white (as they originally were made) and in color (colorized by computer). Personally I like the colorized versions because the old black and white films are sometimes in poor health and a lot of detail has been lost. Color brings back a lot of the visual storytelling. There are a couple of classics here. Not only is this a seasonal treat (there's snow, there's Christmas tree selling in the summer, there's more snow) for anyone who remembers seeing Stand and Ollie when they were a kid, it's also fun for the next generation. There's not a lot of complicated dialogue here — there's enough to be seen and lots of silliness. A good buy — if only the movie guys put out more Laurel and Hardy dvd's this way.
