Laurel & Hardy (Triple Bill - Duck Soup, Two Tars, Liberty)

An outstanding Laurel and Hardy triple bill, befitting a return to in-person events, concluding with the people's choice as voted for by our lovely audience in 2020. 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!
