LAUREL & HARDY: THE ORIGINAL ODD COUPLE
Another Nice Mess: The Restored Laurel and Hardy, Volume 2
Co-presented by Jeff Joseph/SabuCat, with special thanks to the UCLA Film and Television Archive, the Library of Congress, Tom Holland/Holland Releasing and Marty DeGrazia of Sonar Entertainment.

Join us for a matinee of shorts featuring legendary comedy duo Laurel and Hardy, all photochemically and digitally restored from the original 35mm elements! Program includes:

“Busy Bodies” (1933, 19 min. Dir. Lloyd French) Laurel and Hardy are at their slapstick best here playing safety-challenged workers at a sawmill. Photochemically preserved and restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive

“Scram!” (1932, 20 min. Dir. Ray McCarey) A drunk invites Stan and Ollie to his mansion but leads them to the wrong house. Photochemically preserved and restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive

“Me and My Pal” (1933, 20 min. Dir. Charley Rogers) Ollie is about to get married to an oil heiress when he and best man Stan get distracted on the way to the wedding.

“One Good Turn” (1931, 20 min. Dir. James W. Horne) Depression-hit Stan and Ollie mistakenly think an old woman who gives them a meal is poor herself.

Join us before the show in the lobby, where author Randy Skretvedt will sign his book, Laurel and Hardy: The Magic Behind the Movies.
Screening format: DCP | 80 min.
