  1. Great idea here! As a relative noob to the L&H canon, can you recommend a place to start? Or will you perhaps be writing an introductory history/timeline? A quick and easy reference point would be very useful for folks like me. Good luck!

    1. Welcome, welcome plummybrummy! Thanks for the message. Yes, a quick reference guide would be a good idea. If you’re looking for a good place to dip your toe in the L&H waters, you could try The Music Box (1932) or Helpmates (1932) or Busy Bodies (1933). To be honest most of the Hal Roach sound shorts are well worth a look. Let me know what you think… 🙂

  2. My grandfather, Lewis A French worked with Hal Roach for many years. My uncle Lloyd French was a director at the studio.
