Another trick question -- Jean Harlow never wore shorts while acting. "Underwear makes me uncomfortable," she said, "and besides, my parts have to breathe."

Laurel and Hardy are permanent guests in my home and yet I seem to have missed this film. Could you tell me which one it is so I can add it to me L&H collection? Many thanks...

Jean Harlow made three short comedies with Laurel and Hardy in 1929 -- Double Whoopee (pictured), Liberty and Bacon Grabbers.

I think they may have shown up in an old box set called "The Lost Films of Laurel and Hardy" about fifteen years ago, but I can't swear to it -- it's out of print.

Thanks for the titles. I have never come across these in Bombay, India. I'll inquire about "The Lost Films of Laurel and Hardy," though. I have some dozen-odd films of L&H and like some family heirloom they are my most prized collection of movies.
