Episode 26 has very lofty ambitions, as Patrick and his guests discuss Laurel & Hardy’s 1929 short, Liberty. In the footsteps of Harold Lloyd, Liberty is the one and only time Stan and Babe made an out-and-out ‘thrill’ picture and what a hilarious short it is!
To help him to discuss the locations used for the filming of Liberty, Patrick welcomes a new guest to the Blogcast, the “great detective of silent film locations”, John Bengtson. As well as hearing John’s Laurel and Hardy back-story, we also have the welcome return of the Atoll Question!
In the show’s second half, Patrick also welcomes regular Laurel and Hardy author and expert and friend of the Blogcast, Randy Skretvedt, who takes a close look at the film’s production history.
