Crocker, Keith LAUREL & HARDY: THE SILENT YEARS Media- Film,
Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Clowning
This is an excellent addition to my "Lost in Laughter with Laurel & Hardy" program which covers their sound work. In this program we examine how the classic comedy team got paired together by Producer Hal Roach, and we look at the silent short comedies produced in the late 1920's. We will watch one of their classic silent short comedies, Do Detectives Think from 1927. It was this short that solidified the classic persona they would adapt and in term would make them the most recognizable comedy teams in history. This program uses DVD.
