The Music Box (1932) Review


Excellent
This 30-minute Laurel & Hardy classic is the duo's only Oscar-winning film, an archetypal short about the boys' foolhardy job of carrying a piano up an endless flight of stairs as the first job of their budding delivery company. It's an often hysterical example of Laurel and Hardy's pioneering brand of physical, feuding-buddy comedy.

Tit for Tat Review


Good
Laurel and Hardy spar with the grocer who runs the shop next door -- as Tit for Tat consumes half an hour of increasingly creative pranks that our boys commit against their neighbor, and vice versa. The finale includes a crate of eggs and a bucket of lard. Priceless.
