Laurel and Hardy's Cinematic Farewell
, 11 Jan. 2011
This review is from: The Stan And Ollie Collection: Utopia [DVD] (DVD)
A 1951 French-Italian production, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's unjustly maligned "Atoll K" deserves another look. If you have only seen the mutilated public-domain dupes of "Utopia" (the 1954 U.S. release), the 87-minute "Dick und Doof erben eine Insel" is quite a surprise in terms of its excellent print quality and the additional subplot with co-star Suzy Delair. The team's cinematic swansong includes some memorable sight gags and a surprising amount of political satire. Though somewhat marred by Stan and Ollie's declining health, the admirably offbeat "Atoll K" remains superior to the team's post-Hal Roach efforts.
