LAUREL & HARDY

Originally titled BABES IN TOYLAND (and retitled after Disney's BABES came out). I watched the extras on that disc today and Stan's home movie footage from 1961 is priceless!


I have been watching the whole L & H catalog for weeks and it is ALL priceless! My friend TODD SOKOLOVE is the Associate Producer on the extras...which are great! It was cool to see all of the locations as they look today. Great to hear and see Jerry Lewis, Tim Conway, Dick Van Dyke, Chuck McCann, etc. talk fondly of the boys!








One of the all-time greats!

I can not stand modern day advertising...commercials like the series of EBAY commercials, that are supposed to be funny BUT are really annoying! I really hate these ROSS and HH GREGG commercials! John Lennon is rolling over in his grave everytime one of those HH GREGG commercials air!
