The Last Laurel & Hardy movie

After translating five really bad Laurel & Hardy movies form 1940s, I watched their last movie ever, Utopia (from 1951). I had rather uneasy feeling watching these frail old men being beaten over their heads. Especially Laurel (61 years old, very sick) looks more like a zombie than living human. Also, this film features young Danny Trejo!

Danny Trejo was born in 1944. So what are you talking about? ;)

Are there ANY good L&H movies? .-)

abraxis: Probably the old silent stuff. I am really not sure, I haven't seen any of their movies for many, many years.

Little tip for easier creating of screenshots in mplayer:
Add -vf screenshot to command line or vf=screenshot to config file and then you can press the "s" key to save screenshot.
