By Peter Reeve VINE VOICE on 26 Sept. 2004
Laurel & Hardy's final movie was made in France in 1950. It was released the next year in Italy as 'Atollo K' and in Britain as 'Robinson Crusoeland'. The USA release was 'Utopia', in 1954.
Scheduled to take a few weeks, it took a whole year and a considerable toll on the patience and health of the two stars. Stan fell ill and was hospitalized during filming.
It is quite unlike any other L&H movie, not least because Stan did not write it. If you are a fan, you absolutely must see it. If you are new to their films, you should avoid it. Start instead with 'Sons of the Desert', 'Way out West', 'Laughing Gravy' or any other of a dozen or more classics. Utopia is not a complete write-off. It has some good gags, It also has some very uncharacteristic moments, such as a joke about Ollie's size, and some attempts at political satire.
The co-director, Leo Joannon, also wrote the story. Stan described Joannon as "funnier than the film, though that's not saying much". Clearly this was not a fun production.
Suzy Delair as Chérie Lamour is very good, and suitably scrumptious. The humour is very much of its time and is an early example of the fifties silliness that Norman Wisdom and Abbott and Costello later exemplified. Humour that seemed hilarious at the time but now is mostly embarrassing. But, just like the films of those latter stars, 'Utopia' has its moments. The final frame is almost unbearably poignant. It is Stan and Ollie's very last scene, and Ollie's final, and no doubt heartfelt, "This is another fine mess you've gotten me into".

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.

All serious Laurel & Hardy fans will have a copy of this on the shelf; mainly because it was their swan song. It's an 'okay' comedy of its time, but because it is clearly the worst of all the Laurel & Hardy features it often gets dreadful reviews. There are one or two decent chuckles to be had along the way, but the stars do look uncomfortable in their roles at times, and Stan is clearly not a well man.
My main gripe would be with the quality of the DVD; certainly no better than the VHS releases of this film a few years ago, which themselves look like they have been struck from a very 'dupey' 16mm print. Somebody surely must have better master material of this film ?
The plot revolves around Stan & Ollie inheriting an uninhabited island (and a boat), and along with a stowaway and a guy without a nationality, set up shop. As you would expect, a female pops up along the way. The best gag involves Stanley's pet lobster!
You're unlikely to pay more than a couple of quid for this DVD, and for that kind of money you haven't been robbed.

Considering this was Laurel & Hardy's final film the quality of this recording is the worst of any of their films available on DVD or VHS. It is a weak film anyway and best only for true Fans who want everything. This release by Artsmagic Ltd is so poor they should be prosecuted for selling bootlegs! It looks like it was transferred off a VHS Video recorded off the TV 30 years ago with the station not being properly tuned in!!!! Stonevision also do a DVD of this film (SVD 5007) which is still quite a poor copy, but is much better than this release. If you want this film buy the Stonevision version....
