This DVD box set includes three feature films from the legendary comedy duo Laurel & Hardy. In The Big Noise the zany antics of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy come to life in a romp about two phony private detectives.Great Guns finds the two joining the Army to protect their country...but who will protect the army from them? And Jitterbugs, considered the best of the Laurel & Hardy projects filmed at Twentieth Century Fox, is an energetic musical comedy featuring the two as a traveling two-man jitterbug band, who operate out of a dilapidated jalopy and form an unlikely partnership with a likeable con man.
THE BIG NOISE: Laurel and Hardy play janitors at a detective agency who pretend to be actual investigators and manage to keep a new bomb out of enemy hands and even sinking a Japanese submarine!
GREAT GUNS: Laurel and Hardy get hired to look after a millionaire's pampered son, and when he gets drafted for the war effort, they decide to enlist themselves.
JITTERBUGS: In one of the best of the later Laurel and Hardy movies, Ollie and Stan play con men selling "gasoline pills" during the oil-shortage days of WWII. However, when they meet a small-town girl whose mother has been bilked of her savings by real-estate swindlers, they don disguises (Hardy as Southern colonel Wattison Bixby and Laurel in drag as Aunt Emily) to bust up the gangster ring.
