In Episode Twenty, Patrick welcomes back to the Blogcast Laurel & Hardy expert and author of Laurel & Hardy: The Magic Behind the Movies and The Laurel & Hardy Movie Scripts, Randy Skretvedt. Throughout the course of the show Randy and Patrick talk about a film that neither of them are overly fond of, Early to Bed, and find that they share a personal reason for taking a dislike to it.
In addition to discussing the film in focus, Randy talks about a recent auction win that landed him a rare pile of vintage Laurel & Hardy items belonging to Oliver Hardy and Charlie Hall and the Hal Roach Studios. This is part one of a two part look at Early to Bed. Don’t miss part two of this deep-dive into Early to Bed, coming in Episode 21, in which Patrick talks to Richard W. Bann about why he likes the film so much!
