Way Out West

Way Out Westerns! kicks off this week at Trailers from Hell, with John Landis introducing Laurel and Hardy's 1937 comedy "Way Out West."

Often cited (by Stan Laurel himself) as a quintessential Laurel and Hardy vehicle, this modest western spoof showcases their gently abusive relationship with a minimum of dialog. The music score by Marvin Hatley was Oscar nominated! Although the team remains popular with the baby boomer generation, present day kids are woefully unfamiliar with L & H.
