Customer Review

on 11 April 2011
COUNTRY HOSPITAL(****) sees Ollie laid up in hospital with a broken leg, Stan pays him a visit and causes havoc by being Stan and although the car scene now looks extremely dodgy, the rest is timeless.
THEM THAR HILLS(*****) has Ollie with gout so, under doctors orders he and Stan hire a caravan and get some fresh mountain air, they arrive shortly after a shoot out between the police and some moonshiners who dump the booze down the well which Stan & Ollie dip into to make coffee.
TIT FOR TAT(*****) is the sequel to THEM THAR HILLS after a couple who've run out of petrol stumble upon Stan & Ollie who get the wife sozzled as the husband fills the car up, in this film they run a shop next door to Stan & Ollie and the husband accuses Ollie of a clandestine meeting with his wife which starts a tit for tat of slaps, dunkings, destruction and a general slow burning pettiness. Both films are classic Laurel & Hardy and show why they were masters of their art.
PERFECT DAY(***) sees Stan & Ollie, their wives, an uncle with gout and the dog attempt to set off for a picnic and are thwarted by the neighbour, a puncture and the local vicar amongst other things. It's okay but feels like it's on auto-pilot.
THEY GO BOOM!(***) is another which is okay but nothing special, Ollie has a cold and Stan attempts to nurse him.
LEAVE EM LAUGHING(***) has Stan with toothache, Ollie lures him to the dentist where thay get high on laughing gas, it's a silent film with a slightly off putting jazzy score, the condition of the film is pretty poor and it's the least successful of all the shorts ( all around 20 mins each) on this disc.
There's also 4 colourized versions of some of these films and I'm sure someone spent many a day hunched over a computer but they needn't have bothered because they look awful and are ultimately pointless, I mean, why not go the whole hog and run a laugh track over the films like some dodgy American sitcom?
