New Restoration Plus Shorts!

Program includes the following shorts:

New Restoration! “Hog Wild” (1930, 19 min.) In this terrific short, Laurel and Hardy struggle mightily to install a radio antenna on the roof of Ollie’s house.

New Restoration! “Brats” (1930, 21 min.) This hilarious short features Stan and Ollie in dual roles - as adults hoping to spend a quiet evening playing checkers, and as the mischievous kids who make that impossible. First time shown with the original Vitaphone soundtrack in more than 80 years!

Introduction by Jeff Joseph of SabuCat.
New Restoration!

1933, 65 min, USA, Dir: William A. Seiter

To attend a convention in Chicago of their fraternal organization, the Sons of the Desert, Stan and Ollie lie to their wives - but their cover story soon falls apart. Laurel and Hardy fans adopted the name of this feature for their organization, and many would cite it as the duo’s best; it was selected for preservation in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 2012. Costarring Charley Chase.

Screening format: DCP. SONS OF THE DESERT restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation and The Film Foundation.
