After appearing in several early films together but not as a team, the Laurel & Hardy we love finally surfaced in the silent shorts THE SECOND HUNDRED YEARS and DO DETECTIVES THINK? Steve Bailey examines both of these movies.
At the start of their team career, Laurel & Hardy made movies in which they starred together, but not as a team. Confused? This podcast will help you grasp the situation. L&H short subjects discussed on this podcast are 45 MINUTES FROM HOLLYWOOD, SLIPPING WIVES, LOVE 'EM AND WEEP, WHY GIRLS LOVE SAILORS, WITH LOVE AND HISSES, SUGAR DADDIES, SAILORS BEWARE, and NOW I'LL TELL ONE.
TO LISTENERS: Throughout this episode, I mistakenly referred to the movie's female villain as "Mrs. Finn"; of course, her name is "Lola Marcel". Please forgive my middle-aged memory lapse! - Thanks for listening, Steve Bailey
