Another Fine Mess: Laurel & Hardy - America’s Greatest Film Team

After acting in many silent films as solo performers, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy were assigned as a team by the Hal Roach Studios in 1926. Their careers became legendary, culminating in 106 films together (34 silent shorts, 45 sound shorts, and 27 sound feature films). Their film characterizations continually bounced off each other, fortified by their defensive or offensive words, deeds, and physical reactions. Many of their films have become cultural documents of early 20th Century urban development. Throughout this course, we will view a selection of their best silent shorts, sound shorts, and early feature films. Come out of the winter cold and warm your heart!
