I recently re-watched (I’d hate to wager how many times I’ve actually seen this particular film) a favorite Laurel and Hardy movie, The Flying Deuces (1939). What makes this a favorite?
Who knows?! Isn’t that the way it is with most Laurel and Hardy, The Three Stooges, Martin and Lewis, or Abbott and Costello movies? Some you simply love more than others. Sometimes it all comes down to nostalgia, I think. If you saw the particular movie during a particularly cherished time in your life, you’ll always cherish the movie.
These comedic teams are ALL about one of the things I’m, personally, ALL about as well. Laughing… loud, often, and unapologetically!
I guess that’s why many of my favorite movies, actors, and actresses (Lucille Ball, anyone?) are those that trigger my favorite sport – laughter.
It shouldn’t surprise you in the least that (given the clown that I am) I collect dvds, movies, and other memorabilia for each of the stars mentioned above.
What could be better than having an hour or two of escapism filled with smiles and side-splitting laughter?
The wonderful Laurel & Hardy – The Collection would make a great addition to any collection.
Amazon is the ideal place to find dvd collections (or individual dvds, of course) of anyone and everyone who makes you smile.
It’s a pastime I highly, highly recommend.
