Captain, I have seen that many times but I still howl with laughter when I see it. Many thanks for posting it. The day can't get any better.I had a very dear friend pass away a few years ago and he loved L & H so much show that whilst we couldn't show a video at the ceremony we used the Avalon Boys At the Ball that's all as the music as people left the Crematorium and it brought a huge smile to everyone's face and I think he would have been smiling himself . So to try and raise a smile today here's the iconic video.
I wouldn't call myself a fan as such, but I like their comedy, it's so clean, innocent and funny - and will still be watched in another 100 years.
The films should be shown on mainstream tv in the evenings on TV in my opinion, I would prefer to watch these than something like reality tv.
I don't know a great deal about L&H, but I remember The Music Box, Saps at Sea, and A Chump at Oxford being very funny.
One scene I remember (don't know what the film was) was when they escaped from a prison, and posed as a couple of painters painting the shops and cars as they tried to go down the street without looking suspicious (ha ha).
makes you wonder why they aren't on repeat anymore... same as Abbot and Costello, or Stooges, or Keystone Cops.. Some sort of Legal issues maybe?I really miss their films being shown which they were on a regular basis
I can't believe that L&H was created nearly 100 years ago. I loved watching the talkie shorts as a child and the films were aired at Christmas.
