Laurel & Hardy: The Laurel-Hardy Murder Case

Available on iTunes
In order to claim an inheritance, the boys present themselves at a creaky, bat-filled mansion on a stormy night. The blockbuster of all Laurel & Hardy shorts was, surprisingly, this playedstraight spoof of old dark-house horror chillers. It grossed almost four times as much as Another Fine Mess, clearly a superior picture. The only explanation must be the many special, multiple, phonetic language versions that were made, and, most especially, the clever title, which foretold and teased the melding of two different popular genres, mystery and comedy. Directed by James Parrott. With Fred Kelsey and Del Henderson.
