An outstanding Laurel and Hardy triple bill, befitting HippFest’s 10th anniversary, concluding with the people’s choice as voted for by our lovely audience.
First up is the long lost, recently re-discovered and restored Duck Soup (later remade with sound as Another Fine Mess, and not to be confused with the 1933 Marx Brothers film). Stan and Ollie are a couple of vagrants who masquerade as owner and housemaid of a fancy mansion. Stan in a dress is always a joy!
Next up is Two Tars – a comedy classic in which The Boys play sailors on leave. The gallus pair score a date with two girls but wind up stalled in a very long traffic jam... and a whole lot of trouble.
Finally, Liberty in which Laurel and Hardy are escaped convicts trying to reclaim their trousers... atop the girders of an unfinished skyscraper!
