In a bumper Episode 24, the Podcast has reached a pivotal moment in Laurel and Hardy’s cinematic history. Today’s film in focus, Habeas Corpus was not only the boys’ first out-and-out scare-comedy, but it was also the moment Stan and Babe took their first steps toward the talkies.
Joining Patrick on this deep-dive into Habeas Corpus is first-time guest and scare-comedy expert, Paul Castiglia. Paul discusses the genesis of the comedy horror film, discusses his Laurel and Hardy backstory and answers the infamous Atoll Question.
In addition, Patrick also welcomes regular Laurel and Hardy author and expert, Randy Skretvedt to take a close look at the film’s synchronised music and effects track.
If you like your Podcasts packed full of interesting information, enjoyable conversation, movie clips and much more besides, then you’ll love Episode 24.
