Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 3 ratings.
Nice selection of rarely seen two-reelers. Of interest to those, like myself, who enjoy those early unseen comedies from the 1930's which never get shown on tv these days. Many familiar faces from the great shorts from Hal Roach starring Laurel & Hardy. Good prints with minimal soundtrack defects. Worth a look.
