Laurel & Hardy: Hog Wild
Stan “helps” Ollie put up a radio aerial on the roof; Mrs. Hardy wants to hear Japan. Many name HOG WILD as their favorite Laurel & Hardy short. Filmed on location at a “prop” house built on a rented lot closer to M-G-M than to nearby Hal Roach Studios. The climactic streetcar collision was shot a half-hour away on the campus of the University of Southern California. The original Art Deco-style main, production credits and opening text titles have been restored and can be enjoyed again for the first time since 1930. Directed by James Parrott. With Fay Holderness as the shrewish wife who is allowed but one humanizing scene of loving tolerance for her suffering husband.
