Laurel & Hardy: Towed In a Hole
Traveling fish peddlers — crabs a specialty — devise a big business idea: buy a dilapidated old boat to fix up and “eliminate the middle-man. ” A superb blend of relaxed slapstick and sophisticated visual humor, this short offers a concise assessment of the team’s comedic relationship when Ollie pauses during a breach of friendly relations to ask Stan, “Isn’t this silly? Here we are, two grown-up men, acting like a couple of children. ” Directed by George Marshall. With Billy Gilbert.
