49. Pardon Us (1930)

Since their official teaming in 'The Second Hundred Years' (1927), Laurel and Hardy's star had been continually rising.

'Blotto' is certainly a fan favourite, based on the amount of times I've seen clips posted on social media fan pages. This is mostly due to just one scene at the end of the film, where the boys are laughing uncontrollably, in the belief that they are drunk (or blotto).  It's quite an interesting film… Continue reading 44.
