Laurel and Hardy in the Hollywood Revue of 1929


Laurel and Hardy in the Hollywood Revue of 1929.

    What a clip…3 comic giants together for the only time…and one of the few appearances by the Great Benny BEFORE he was 39! The only difference was that in ’29 he was not funny yet.

    The original Penn and Teller

    That is completely absurd, mdumas. L&H did several sound shorts before this in which Stan DID speak. If you have seen most L&H films, you will note that, most of the time, Stan’s character did not speak until spoken to. If anything, the Marx Brothers copied HIM since he had been in the business for years before they were given a thought in Hollywood.

    This is the first time I’ve seen this, and even though I could anticipate a number of the gags, I still laughed at it.

    Laurel & Hardy became popular as silent film performers, and they were lucky that their voices were both good, and complimented their characters so well. That enabled them to remain stars in sound films.

    Besides L&H, there ARE several other bright-spots to “Hollywood Revue”: A Joan Crawford song-and-dance (which was used in “That’s Entertainment”), and a nice, early- Technicolor “Romeo & Juliet” spoof, with John Gilbert, Norma Shearer, and Lionel Barrymore as their director, and that’s about it. The rest(at roughly 2-long hours) is a genuine-challenge to wade through!

    your a fool

    Thanks for putting this up – I’d never seen this clip before and it is hilarious.

  • TheJediCharles posted: 20 Nov at 5:22 am

    Borrow from the Marx brothers? Fear of British-rejection in the states? You do realize you’re talking about comedic geniuses, don’t you?

    Stanley’s character never spoke without cause enough to come out of his shell. He knew is place around Hardy was to be silent until told otherwise.

    Besides, he did shush Oliver.

    The skit’s ok..the rest of the film and

    Mr.Benny..Not!

    i bet you love this lee cook

  • fjeffrey10 posted: 20 Nov at 7:14 am

    That’s the best Laurel & Hardy clip on Youtube.

  • digitalshark posted: 20 Nov at 7:22 am

    drdee51 – I heard much the same. So glad I can see the boys here without all that awful window dressing.

  • digitalshark posted: 20 Nov at 7:56 am

    “Unaccustomed as We Are,” “Berth Marks,” “Men O’ War,” “A Perfect Day” and “Hoosegow” all came out the same year. Now I’ve got to research which was filmed exactly when during that year! My first instinct is to say this clip was not their first. You raise a really interesting idea. What would it have been like if Laurel never spoke? Cannot even imagine it now.

  • FlyingKipperStudios posted: 20 Nov at 8:51 am

    I think that made Ollie’s “Shut up!!!” even more hilarious! 😀

  • mdumas43073 posted: 20 Nov at 8:55 am

    An interesting curio, to be sure…I’m wondering why they didn’t have Stan speak at all, though. Were they toying with making him a Harpo Marx-style pantomime character? Were they afraid his English accent wouldn’t wash with U.S. audiences? Some other reason?

  • fromthesidelines posted: 20 Nov at 9:39 am

    Because MGM was releasing Hal Roach’s comedy shorts- and Laurel & Hardy were quickly becoming the Roach studio’s “star attraction”, they were included in the “Hollywood Revue” as well.

    A rare treat, many thanks for helping to keep the legends alive

  • oryp48 posted: 20 Nov at 11:20 am

    Ollie is hilarious I bet this is the only time L&H and Jack Benny He’s a riot too

  • drdee51 posted: 20 Nov at 11:41 am

    The Hollywood Revue of 1929 is not a lost film. The film introduced the song Singin’ in The Rain. But other than that and the Laurel and Hardy skit, the film is a total dog. I have seen it and it is dreadful.

  • drdee51 posted: 20 Nov at 12:37 pm

    No. The Jazz Singer was a silent filmn with Vitaphone segments. Its relevance is that it was the first film with brief sound segments that the public accepted. Edison was making sound pictures in 1913.

    See for more rare Laurel and Hardy footage, by clicking my channel (klukhuhntje). Video’s like the missing rogue scene, their last footage ever in 1956, the water rats in 1955, the tree in a test tube ,
    a interview and much, much more!

  • mrgb46 posted: 20 Nov at 1:38 pm

    I think “The Jazz Singer” with Al Jolson was the first sound film..

  • mrgb46 posted: 20 Nov at 1:51 pm

    The only good thing about this movie is Laurel and Hardy..

  • luisber2 posted: 20 Nov at 2:04 pm

    ¡Increíble! Una verdadera joya.
