Busy Bodies (1933)

One of the all-time, greatest two-reelers Laurel and Hardy ever produced. The idea of the Boys working in a saw mill is the perfect set-up for one great sight gag after another -- truly too many to list here. A great example of how the team could take slapstick situations that you could imagine being played by other comedians -- but make them entirely their own.

It's also a great example of how much their supporting players brought to these comedies: Tiny Sandford is the mill foreman, and their old nemesis Charlie Hall is their bedeviled coworker.

I remember this was one of the first Laurel and Hardy films I saw -- I had it on a VHS tape along with The Music Box, Helpmates, The Chimp and Chickens Come Home
