May 2009 marks the eightieth anniversary of the release of the first Laurel and Hardy talkie. In celebration of this milestone, Hollywood Heritage is marking the occasion with a special retrospective of the celebrated comic duo. Through original film prints, they will trace the remarkable transition from silent to sound. The 1929 program will include:

Wrong Again: with the original Vitaphone synchronized score lost for decades
Unaccusomed As We Are: their first 2 reel "ALL-TALKING SHORT" with sound recorded on disc
Men O' War: RESTORED VERSION and one of the first "shot on location" sound shorts
Laurel & Hardy in Spanish - they actually speak in Spanish release films.

plus surprises and rarities from the archive of film historian and three time Emmy award-winning actor Stan Taffel.

$5 for Hollywood Heritage Members, $8 for non-members.
