Product Overview

They were one of the movies' most successful and best-loved comic duos, probably because their irresistible slapstick antics were underscored by an indomitable optimism. Beginning with shorts made at the Hal Roach Studios, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy struck a universal chord by sharing a contentious yet benign friendship that always survived whatever indignities their mutual bumbling brought upon them. This TCM Archives two-disc collection focuses on the team at their zenith during the sound era and spotlights two features produced by Roach for MGM. The Devil's Brother (1933) (also known as Fra Diavolo) is a laugh-filled adaptation of the Auber operetta in which "Stanlio" and "Ollio" tangle with a notorious robber baron. The delightful Bonnie Scotland (1935) is a misadventure that takes the boys to Scotland and India.Format: DVD MOVIE

Review [Devil's] The music was pleasant but got in the way of the Laurel and Hardy humor. Or, if you're more into music than mirth, you might look at it the other way around. Whichever, the movie left much to be desired from both angles. The picture was variously reissued as Bogus Bandits and The Virtuous Tramps but the new titles didn't help. Only the drinking scene stands out for laughter.

Review [Bonnie] Comedy outshines the plot, the second half being a satire of The Lives of a Bengal Lancer. In fact the usual conclusion of the lovers getting together never occurs as the film ends in the chaos of everyone running from the bees.
