Laurel & Hardy on reels

#1 by Vidar Olavesen , Sun Aug 05, 2018 9:11 pm

I wish to start a list of all released films on any reel gauge. Both by themselves and as a pair.

Would like to get info like this
Way Out West (if not original title, whichfilm it is from), 3x400’, Super 8, sound, run time (edited or full), Blackhawk

Will try to add my own soon, hope others can help fill the list (no need to start yet)

Pointless?

General rule: Blackhawk copies are complete (except for a few cutdowns from features).Walton copies are shortened.

Mountain Films used to distribute the films before Walton. I have Way Out West from them which is a 4x400ft. If I can find the issue I'll post a scan of the advert for the films.


I still love the smell of film in the morning

Hi Vidar,

L&H also made a cameo appearance in the Thelma Todd short "On the Loose". I have a Blackhawk copy on Super 8.
I will check my L&H films in the next few days and get back to you.
In the meantime, here is some info on 16mm L&H films. I do not know if it is 100% accurate and complete. Maybe it is helpful to you...
