Join us before the show in the lobby, where author Randy Skretvedt will sign his book, Laurel and Hardy: The Magic Behind the Movies.
WAY OUT WEST
1937, Sonar Entertainment, 65 min, USA, Dir: James W. Horne

In what half of their fans consider their best feature, Stan and Ollie arrive in Brushwood Gulch to deliver the deed to a gold mine that was bequeathed to a prospector’s daughter. After being tricked out of it by nefarious saloon keeper Jimmie Finlayson (the man who taught Homer Simpson to say “D'oh!”), the two tenderheels must retrieve the deed and rescue the rightful heiress. Endlessly entertaining, with Rosina Lawrence, Sharon Lynne, Stanley Fields and the boys’ legendary soft-shoe to "At the Ball, That’s All" and duet of "Trail of the Lonesome Pine." Both Laurel and Hardy cited this film as their personal favorite.


WAY OUT WEST is photochemically preserved and restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive. Preserved at the UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by the Film Foundation. Screening format: DCP
