Website criteria: all films made by Hal Roach/Hal Roach Studios; all films featuring Stan Laurel; all films featuring Oliver Hardy;

This website is updated almost daily and is still being constructed. There will be some page design issues and alignment issues for a while....
Some "errors" on the site are in the process of being fixed, such as films listed as not being available on DVD
at the time of the page being last updated where the film is now available. Stuff like that.
If you find any errors please report them to this forum and I shall try to get to them a.s.a.p.


LATEST UPDATED PAGES IN THE LAST MONTH....

JA 20: Viewed and reviewed The Boy Friends' High Gear (1931), which I have to confess I really enjoyed and spent a lot of effort on. I was also glad to finally add one of the beautiful stills that was given to me by Fran Gilbert (Dick Gilbert's daughter) shortly before she passed away .Added Marion Byron's signature to the Autographs page, bringing the new total to 160.
JAN 18: Viewed and reviewed The Boy Friends' Blood And Thunder (1931). Added Joyce Coad, Ben Hall and Oscar Rudolph to the site.
JAN 16: Viewed and reviewed the first 2 minutes of the Vanity Fair Girls film Burglars Bold (1921). The full film is available on DVD but I do not have it.
JAN 15: Viewed and reviewed the Our Gang short, Spook-Spoofing (1928), which was released 91 years ago yesterday. Utterly ridiculous film.
JAN 14: Added Johnny Aber to the site.
JAN 13: Viewed and reviewed the Our Gang short, Tire Trouble (1924), which was released 95 years ago today.
JAN 09: Viewed and reviewed the utterly awful Our Gang short, Reunion In Rhythm (1937), which was released 82 years ago today.
JAN 07: Viewed and reviewed Earl Mohan's The Bouncer (1925). My only satisfaction from enduring this ten minutes of crap was finding so many actors in the film which were not listed elsewhere.
JAN 05: A few new additional cast added to both The Rat's Knuckles and The Battle Of The Century thanks to Jesse. Added Wilkie C. Mahoney to the site.
JAN 04: Viewed and reviewed Charley Chase's The Rat's Knuckles (1925) which was released 94 years ago today. Four film reviews in four days? Must be bored!
JAN 03: Viewed and reviewed the (almost) complete version of The Battle Of The Century (1927) and now completed the page. Added Edith Fortier and Patsy Britten to the site.
JAN 02: Viewed and reviewed Our Gang's Readin' And Writin' (1932), which was released 87 years ago today.
JAN 01: Viewed and reviewed Our Gang's Playin' Hookey (1928), which was released 91 years ago today.
DEC 27: Completely stripped and re-done the (now complete) review for The Finishing Touch (1928) with tons of new stills added, as well as all the intertitle cards and, well, everything!
DEC 18: Viewed and reviewed Max Davidson's Flaming Fathers (1927), which was released to theatres 91 years ago today.
DEC 16: Viewed and reviewed Our Gang's Sunday Calm (1923), which was released to theatres 95 years ago today.
DEC 11: Viewed and reviewed the newly restored print (now available on DVD, see above for details) of Our Gang's The Love Bug (1925). All screenshots on the page are from the DVD.
DEC 10: Major page upgrade for Our Gang star Joan Gray which now has photo and correct dates thanks to the excellent research from Jim Jarvis. Now let's see how long it takes before someone steals the information and submits it to the "wonderful" IMDb.
DEC 07: Viewed and reviewed Stan Laurel's Somewhere In Wrong, which is another one of the bonus films restored and released in hi-definition on the recent Atoll K disc.
DEC 04: Viewed and reviewed another Babe Hardy solo film, Something In Her Eye (1915). Added Roy Byron and Added Don Ferrando to the site.
DEC 03: Viewed and reviewed the previously-unavailable Babe Hardy solo film from the Atoll K Blu-Ray, Mother's Baby Boy (1914). Added Nellie Farran and Eva Bell to the site. Released today in hi-definition BLU-RAY comes Laurel & Hardy's final (and very underrated) movie: Atoll K. I have put together some uncompressed screenshots from the disc to show exactly what the transfer looks like. See here. Although I am not a fan of L&H myself, I will gladly confess I do have a soft spot for this film and welcome its magnificent release on Blu-Ray! Thank you to the BFI (and believe me that is the FIRST time I have ever had anything good to say about them) for making this happen.
DEC 01: Added J.J. Clayton to the site.
NOV 30: Reviewed the existing footage I have from the Paul Parrott short, Finger Prints (1923).
NOV 29: Added Brian Aherne and George Zucco to the site. Major page upgrade and refurb for Will Stanton, which now lists all 14 of his Roach films instead of just the 6 that were there previously.
NOV 28: Viewed and reviewed what has to be one of the most awful films Hal Roach ever produced: the All-Star short Next Week-End (1934). Though, I did find a few previously uncredited actors in it - namely Charlie Hall, James C. Morton, Bobby Burns etc. So it wasn't such a total waste of my time.
NOV 27: Viewed and reviewed Our Gang's Crazy House (1928). Added 5 new actors to the site: Joseph W. Girard, Jimmy Farren, Ben Parsons, Eugene Pearson and Bill Ulmer.
