Paying What You Owe.
Laurel And Hardy

Infamous for their witty sense of humor that whips you around for both, their verbal sparrings and physical sequences, this comedy duo has managed to entertain and inspire millions of viewers and comedians for their own personality and nothing else. The type of characters that they have shined their lights on, may not resonate on terms of their characteristics with you, but can easily be communicated by their deeds. And performing such simplistic persona, Laurel and Hardy has spoken a lot of the society that they resided at that era and the betterment that they seek at the end of it. Laurel using his body language often has the torch in his hand, he is a type-of-bully natured towards Hardy but in a brotherly way, he also plays the smarter cookie between them, the one who is more is touch with practicality. Hardy, on the other hand, has its own rhythm to beat, he lives on his own imagination, he is more emotionally fueled and often the butt of the joke. Teaming up for ensuing chaos for themselves, the writing has always explored the nature of a being, to its best and is its primary armor to draw in the dramatic impact on their audience. Their knack of animating themselves on the gags; something that comes up when they are deep into it and have been exaggerating for a while, doesn't come off as they anticipate every time.

The Hoose-Gow

It not only has an intriguing idea behind all the chaos, but the chaos itself is smartly caught fire in this forest of Laurel and Hardy. Yes, it's final act is disappointing and it doesn't have any gist or whatsoever definite point to end on. But the otherwise effect is spectacular from to the point antics to no more relying upon the explanation, this is fast paced and lofty screenplay performed brilliantly by themselves.
