We dive into our oldest film review this week with Rich’s choice of ‘Pack Up Your Troubles’ from all the way back in 1932. Now, we are all aware of the very iconic Laurel and Hardy, but how much do we really know about their work? ‘Turns out not very much past their short films. (Did you know they wore blue and yellow jackets?) Will we be able to handle them in a feature length dose where we find them drafted into the army and also bringing up an orphan child? Join Rich Abi and Ant this time as they ponder the out of date comedy references, reminisce about the old Laurel and Hardy cartoon and really learn that comedy and tragedy are intertwined, with such themes up for discussion as domestic abuse, child abduction and good men dying in war.
