Stan & Ollie "out-foxed",
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Laurel And Hardy Box Set: Volume 1 [DVD] (DVD)
After leaving the cosy home of Hal Roach Studios L & H made a series of feature films for 20th Century Fox. The move was not entirely ideal as the working methods proved to be very different to the Roach days. Stan himself is on record as saying the stifling attitude at Fox resulted in what he considered second-rate films. But, 2nd or even 3rd rate Laurel & Hardy is often better than 1st rate anybody else. The three films in this box are "Great Guns" in which the boys are drafted into the army, "The Big Noise" involving delivering a super-bomb, and, perhaps the best of the bunch "Jitterbugs" where they are sideshow two-man-band performers. Volume two has "Dancing Masters", "A-Haunting we will go" and "The Bullfighters". Very good picture and sound quality throughout, though with no extra bonus material.

Brilliant detailed & spot on review, give me this duo over the unfunny tripe released in cinemas today, for me Laurel & Hardy are simply the best, especially the Hal Roach era.
