All UK Laurel and Hardy fans - especially you, Derek McL ! A 21 disc box set of Laurel and Hardy films is being released on 3rd May 2004. See here for details - http://www.play.com/play247.asp?page...2&p=57&c=&g=72 Details are sketchy at the moment, but the discs will also be released individually. Run a further search on the Play site and you'll see the titles of each release, which give some clues as to the content. It seems the discs will be an amalgamation of the sound shorts, the silent shorts and the features, loosely arranged around themes. As I can only see 20 individual discs listed, it seems likely that the 21st disc will comprise of bonus features to entice us into buying the box set. If you go to www.mvc.co.uk and do a search, you'll see a small shot of the box set itself. It remains to be seen whether this is the complete canon but it seems likely. This presents a slight dilemma, as there are Dutch compilations of all the silent shorts, sound shorts and features also being released this year, offering the Kinowelt transfers but no extras, for a considerably cheaper price. A lot will depend on the quality of prints used by Vision Video and the bonus features. Still - great news !
