Retro: The Unquiet American


James Parrot
USA 1932
30 min

Perhaps the greatest of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy’s sound shorts (1932), which won them an Academy Award, is a half-hour epic of sorts, most of it devoted to their torturous efforts to deliver a piano to a hilltop home. There are few locations in cinema more memorable than the vertical steps leading to the home of Professor Theodore von Schwarzenhoffen (Billy Gilbert), endlessly and repeatedly crossed by these hapless movers.
