LAUREL & HARDY: WAY OUT WEST (1937) INTRO FROM BILL ODDIE AND ROBIN INCE Friday, 18 Jan 10:00pm Bristol Old Vic
In this classic comedy from Stan & Ollie, a prospector enlists the pair to deliver the deed for a goldmine to his daughter Mary in Brushwood Gulch. When they arrive in the small village, Mary’s sinister guardian pretends to be Mary, thus fooling the hapless duo into handing over the deed. Upon meeting the real Mary, the pair realise their mistake and set about getting the deed into the rightful owner’s hands. Considered by many – including Bill Oddie – to be Laurel & Hardy’s finest and funniest film, this screening is proceeded by a brief onstage chat with Robin Ince and Bill Oddie.
