I was watching a documentary on the shorts Hollywood use to do as a warm up to the feature. Fascinating. There was a funny clip of Laurel and Hardy playing magicians. Anyone ever see this documentary or the clip?

It was interesting to see the variety of shorts that were done. I believe the documentary was narrated by Chevy Chase.

The film link is broken there but this one works:

All their slapstick scenes and quite magical, amazing. I think one might use them as inspiration to create magic effects.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Tommy, the link you gave clearly said "Laurel and Hardy IMPERSONATORS"

Ed, it was clearly a beautiful impersonation.

Oh, that's fine. I just thought it was actually going to be THEM.

I was never a big Laurel and Hardy fan. I saw the cleverness, but just couldn't get into it.

I was going through a "mysteries" phase for awhile, I found a weird one called "If Laurel Shot Hardy, The World Would End!"

A crime takes place on a college campus during a "Laurel and Hardy" film festival, most of the college is dressed as either Laurel or Hardy, so two thieves dressed as the pair, don't even get noticed.

I was a big Laurel & Hardy fan. The recent movie Stan & Ollie was fantastic. Both actors did a great job capturing their personalities.

These two guys were pretty good!

The new guys in the recent movie were perfect, too.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.
