4.0 out of 5 stars CONTENTS OF THIS SET, 7 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tcm Archives: Laurel & Hardy Collection [DVD] [1933] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
A region 1 (USA) 2 disk set only playable here in the UK with a multi-region dvd player. A real treat for Laurel + Hardy fans though, if you have the great UK 21 disk set and want to fill the gaps heres a great start.

This set has

Disk 1 - THE DEVILS BROTHER (aka FRAU DIAVALO) .... this film is already available here in the UK on dvd. The other film on this disk is BONNIE SCOTLAND .... currently unavailable in the UK. Both movies have commentaries by Leonard Maltin and Richard W. Bann (L+H aficionado..apparently). TCM host Robert Osbourne does an introduction to each movie.

Disk 2 - Added Attractions .... a feature length documentary about cinematic shorts, encompassing L+H, Our Gang, Three Stooges and many other things. Not strictly of huge interest to L+H fans (bit of a filler to be honest) but still worth seeing.

Also on this second disk (and this is worth getting the set alone for) is the scenes featuring Laurel and Hardy from a few films they made cameo appearances in...you dont get the whole movies, just the parts with Laurel and Hardy which is fair enough as the rest of the movies arnt really worth seeing. These are...

HOLLYWOOD REVUE OF 1929 - Magic act segment
HOLLYWOOD PARTY - 2 segments including egg segment with Lupe Velez
PICK A STAR - 3 segments, including Harmonica Duel, mexican bandit scene and Olly/Stan being knocked out with bottles (superb)

..There is also the rare fragment found from the lost colour film ROGUE SONG. Throw in some theatrical trailers and...well nice set!!!

To complete your collection check out the two 20th Century Fox collections available here in the UK, the KINO release of FLYING DEUCES and the double bill dvd NOTHING BUT TROUBLE/AIR RAID WARDENS (both DEUCES and the double bill dvd will need a multi-region player).
