The films look as good as movies from 1929 to 1940 can reasonably be expected to look. Included in the boxed set are seven foreign-language films (six in Spanish, one in French), shot in order to keep the duo popular in overseas markets, before dubbing made that goal easier. Fascinatingly, these films often extend the English-language films they are ostensibly adapted from, with different gags and plot turns--and it's fun to hear Stan and Ollie speaking in another language. Special features include a ho-hum 40-minute tribute with testimonials from fellow comedians (especially talkative are Dick Van Dyke and Jerry Lewis); an ""Interactive Map"" with Los Angeles location sites from their movies; three Roach shorts in which L&H pop up in cameos; and a 1942 short produced for the Department of Agriculture (another L&H cameo). A few (not many) films have commentaries that include the informed Laurel and Hardy buff Richard W. Bann; Sons of the Desert has a track with Tim Conway and Chuck McCann, who don't seem to know how a commentary track works but have a nice time watching the movie. --Robert Horton"

It's a wonderful collection but padded with French and Spanish language versions. It doesn't include Big Business which is, to me, the best film they ever made.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer

This box set only collects the sound films. Hopefully there will also be a box set of the silent classics like Big Business!

|Costco had these on sale today and would not sell them because..||
I have the set. Mine was not defective at all, played very well. I wonder if they do not mean defective in that it lacked closed captioning and/ or subtitles. Or maybe it was "defective" because it lacked certain films (which may be under another company's ownership). I am curious to... Read More

|why arent these in 3d???????????/||
How about a Virtual Reality set with "Odor-Rama" , that African clicking language, closed captions, and hologram functions? YEAH! No matter though, L&H are wonderful.

I bought a little CD case at the local dollar store with soft fabric sleeves and put all the discs in that for safe removal and storage. The image quality of this set is amazing and I think for the price this is a "must have" for any L&H or classic comedy fan.

|Laurel and Hardy Silent Collection?||
There was a nine-volume set of Laurel & Hardy's silents released years ago, but it's now out of print. Used copies are available, but they're not cheap:
