tonite at 8...

An entire evening of the genius of Laurel & Hardy.

Not for everyone BUT if you appreciate the wonderful comedy of these men, do yourself a favor and check it out.

Starting with their masterpiece, THE MUSIC BOX.
Is March of the Wooden Soldiers in there anywhere?

Yep. With John C. Reilly.
Sons of the Desert is one of their best.

I always liked Pack Up Your Troubles a lot, even though some L&H aficionados don't consider it a strong offering in the catalog.

Yes.

No reason for TCM to broadcast that movie tonight, since it's broadcast more often than any other L&H film.
Don't miss "Busy Bodies" - second film tonight - truly a gem

Tonight is Abbott and Costello

..Rio Rita...at 10pm est. That's one that's very hard to find on DVD or Blu-ray. It was released in 2011 but it's not readily available. I suggest catching it if you're a fan as it will probably be new to you unless you saw it as a kid in the 70s on WPIX on Sunday mornings
