Throughout the various film communities online such as on Facebook, letterboxd, IMDB, RottenTomatoes, there is never much talk on Laurel…
A Chump at Oxford
The boys get jobs as a butler and maid (Stan in drag) for a dinner party. When that ends in disaster, they resort to sweeping streets and accidentally capture a bank robber. The thankful bank president sends them to Oxford to get an education. Predictable results ensue.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Some funny parts and a very young Peter Cushing. The hedge maze is great.
Stan's and Ollie's adventures as Oxford University freshmen are little more than a series of loosely connected shorts, but they still are a lot of fun. Highlights are a streak of gags with a third "phantom" hand, and the final episode with Stan turning into a strong-fisted savant.
the best comedy ever filmed
Not one of the very best Laurel & Hardy films, but still pretty damn good. Has an early appearance from Peter Cushing.

TRT of 90 minutes or less. Have I seen them all? Yes, but that doesn't mean I'll vouch for them.
