It's sad when I mention this comedy duo to people and they look at me with a blank stare. This is the most famous chubby and thin man duo of the early 20th Century which inspired other comedy teams from Abbott & Costello, Belushi & Ackroyd and Adam Sandler & Kevin James. Laurel & Hardy' slapstick routine is amazingly depicted in this ten disc collection. The print quality is quite good and the amount of material in this collection is extensive. Although hilarious I kept watching it more for the historical context. It certainly takes you back to a different world although the comedy sketches aren't that different from those of today - indicative of the derivative nature of writing in Hollywood. A must see collection for anyone who wants to laugh or take a walk back to the early days of moviemaking.
