UCLA is undertaking the restoration of most of the Hal Roach library. A few features have already been completed, but it will be years before all the titles have been restored. (There are dozens and dozens of picture and sound reels that must be examined for the Laurel & Hardy subjects alone.) So this will be time-consuming and labor-intensive, and we won't see the fruits of these labors for awhile yet. The DVD set should be the best-quality Laurel & Hardy prints we've seen thus far. I gather that these are the same editions that RHI prepared for the American Movie Classics network, which are uncut and have the original title footage intact, now even better in remastered high definition.
