Synopsis

Five-disc Laurel and Hardy box set. 'A Lucky Dog', the first film in which Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy ever appeared together, features Ollie as a bandit who robs Stan. 'Be Big' is a 30-minute sound short in which the boys deceive their wives in order to go to a stag party. 'March of the Wooden Soldiers', a Christmas-time comic operetta, sees the bumbling Stan and Ollie on a mission to save the citizens of Toyland from the evil Silas Barnaby and his horrible Bogeymen. In 'The Flying Deuces', the boys join the foreign legion so that heartbroken Ollie can forget the love of his life. A series of comical complications end with the boys taking off in a runaway plane they don't know how to fly. 'Utopia', Laurel and Hardy's final film, sees the boys setting up their own nation after being shipwrecked on a newly-formed island along with their cook, a stowaway and a girl who is fleeing her fiance. The set also includes Laurel and Hardy's appearance on the Ralph Edwards TV show 'This is Your Life', and 'Laurel Hardy at the Movies', a selection of movie trailers and rare clips.
