The Laurel And Hardy Collection, Vol. 2
Here's another fine, three-disc mess for Laurel and Hardy, as the boys get mixed up with gangsters, a stage magician, and a plot to use a coffin's not-so-dead occupant to make a fortune, in "A-Haunting We Will Go" (1942). Dante, Sheila Ryan, and Elisha Cook, Jr. also star. Next, the boys--that is, the "girls"--masquerade as the proprietors of a ballet school while assisting a young inventor and avoiding shady racketeers, in "The Dancing Masters" (1943). Trudy Marshall, Robert Bailey also star. Finally, one of Laurel and Hardy's last feature comedies finds them heading to Mexico for a rest, only to run into gangsters who mistake Stan for a top matador. A great closing sight gag highlights "The Bullfighters" (1945). With Margo Woode, Richard Lane. 3 1/4 hrs. total. Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital stereo, Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, Spanish; audio commentary; bonus short "The Tree In A Test Tube" (1943); featurettes; newsreel footage; theatrical trailers.
