Laurel and Hardy

Film Review
Laurel and Hardy

The Laurel and Hardy comedy films are the predecessors to the more famous group “The Three Stooges.” Laurel and Hardy was a series of films starring two comedians (Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy) filmed from 1921-1951. Laurel and Hardy use a lot of repetitive actions to the point of comedy. For example, in the episode “Me and My Pal,” Laurel gives a jigsaw puzzle to Hardy as a present and he (and everyone else) cannot stop putting it together.

Even though this series of films is over 100 years old, it can still be a great and interesting watch because even though the films have very basic and elementary plots, Laurel and Hardy are able to make it so enjoyable to not let it distract or dismay watchers. Additionally, the films show the normalities of the 20-50s and what people back then enjoyed. In conclusion, Laurel and Hardy is a great watch for all ages because of how it is very easy to understand what is happening. Even though the film is black and white, old, and has old language, it is still fun to watch.

    I loved Laurel and Hardy as a child and even more as an adult. I’m so glad it is on TV. Thank you!
