The more, the merrier. Weren't there rumours a while ago that Arrow were looking into releasing a L&H collection?

Would love to see some L&H on BD. I like all L&H but the best years IMO are from early to mid 1930's

Totally agree. Their Hal Roach films are without doubt the best films the duo have made, and the later 20th Century Fox films from the 40's, while not disastrous by any means, were certainly a step down from the HR comedies.

The only L&H blu-ray I've come across is The Flying Deuces (Network).

The Fox L&H films are all available on blu-ray in Europe already. The authoring is a mess but they're HD and they look pretty much OK.

i have the Universal DVDs of the Hal Roach films, and there's no English subtitles on the foreign language films for some ridiculous reason, renders them unwatchable. I'd be happy to upgrade them if someone puts out the Hal Roach set with subtitles where applicable.

The US Laurel and Hardy Essential Collection DVD from RHI subtitles them, but it only covers the Hal Roach talkies. It's an excellent set.

I collected all the German Kinowelt DVDs back in the day, way before the complete Universal set came out in the UK which I also got. The Kinowelt DVDs looked better in many cases and Block-Heads had a short scene missing from the Universal version.

Maybe its Fra Diavolo and Bonnie Scotland? That would be nice.

I've been watching the spate of them on Talking Pictures TV over the last few months, and enjoyed them again after more than three decades since I watched them all first time around.

I can remember when the BBC used to show their shorts around teatime in the late 70s. I used to dash home from school as fast as I could to catch them in time. Loved them back then and still love watching them today......nearly 40 years later. Oh boy, does that make me feel old.

I watched them when BBC2 played them in the early 80s, sticking them each in a slot at about 5.35 or 6pm.

Like Tom and Jerry - the original cartoons (including the ones we can't get on Blu) - they were always regarded as a useful filler by the BBC for those awkwardly short timeslots before 6:00. Stan and Ollie disappeared from our screens for decades because of a legal ownership dispute whle with Tom and Jerry it was originally because of complaints about the excessive violence rather than racial stereotypes, so they both pretty much skipped a whole generation of viewers for lack of exposure.

Thank you. I left school in 1982, so I would have watched the early 80s screenings as well. I lived quite far from my school, and with the bus journey and a bit of a walk from the bus stop to my house, I would have got home close to around 5.30 - depending if the bus ran on time. So my homework had to wait until later in the evening after I watched L&H.

As well as Tom and Jerry, the BBC (and ITV for that matter) used to show loads of classic cartoons up until about the late 80s/early 90s. And now nothing! A shame really, and even the DVD's have many of the T&J episodes in an edited form.
