Trailers from Hell: John Landis on Laurel and Hardy Classic ‘Way Out West’
Trailers from Hell: John Landis on Laurel and Hardy Classic '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.
