5.0 out of 5 stars The best L&H film, 1 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Laurel & Hardy Volume 13 - Sons of the Desert/Related Shorts [DVD] (DVD)
Sons of the Desert is the best feature length L&H film you can buy.

Right from the beginning Stan has grave doubts about being a member of the 'Sons of the Desert' - "well the exhausted ruler said..." and is equally worried about whether his wife will let him attend the convention "if I didn't ask her I wouldn't know what she wanted me to do".

This film has many great set pieces, of which perhaps my favourite is their complete inability to get into the right house. They live next to each other in 2220 and 2222:

Stan attempts to get into Ollies house.

Stan shuts Ollie out of his own house.

Stan is locked out of his own house.

All this drives Mrs Hardy wild, and to make matters worse Stan starts eating the Hardy's Wax fruit - "thats the 3rd one of those thats gone missing this week" says Mrs H.

As with most L&H shorts or films the two guys are completely subservient to their wifes. Ollie believes he's runs things but in fact his wife does. Stan knows his wife wears the trousers, and consequently when the crockery is flying at the end its Ollie who suffers (as always)!

This is a consistently funny film, and whilst the two shorts are good, the reason to buy this DVD is the main black & white feature.
