Minding The Store With Mr. Laurel & Mr. Hardy (by Ron Oliver)
A LAUREL & HARDY Comedy Short. The Boys are opening a new electrical supply store and are surprised to learn that the grocery next door is owned by the same bickering couple they met disastrously in THEM THAR HILLS. Mr. Hall quickly impugns Ollie's honor & the resulting TIT FOR TAT struggle, in which they wreck havoc on each other's person & property, quickly reaches donnybrook proportions...A hilarious film, one of Stan & Ollie's best. The battle royal with the grocer is long & very satisfying. Notice the running gag of the little fellow robbing the Boys <more>
blind. Charley Hall & Mae Busch play the neighbors.
Like another reviewer, I saw "Tit for Tat" shortly after viewing "Them Thar Hills," a crackerjack short in its own right and was pleasantly surprised to see Busch and Hall back as the same characters; I didn't realize that this was a sequel until Stan referred to meeting them in the hills."Tit for Tat" is essentially a simple, one-joke outing. But, much like "The Music Box", Mr. Laurel and Mr. Hardy wring every last possible laugh out of the situation. Their battle with grocer Charley Hall starts small, but doesn't stay small for <more>
long.There's no need to see "Hills" before this one; the story really can stand alone...but is enhanced if you know about the previous antics.Other reviewers had remarked about Ollie's rather salacious-sounding comment to Mae Busch. Oddly enough, the Hays censorship code was in effect at the time; it was one of the reasons that Betty Boop ended up with collared, long-hem/long-sleeve dresses. Pre-Code, Ollie's remark wouldn't have been noticed. But with censorship rules in place, I too, am surprised that the line was kept in.Superior work from all involved makes "Tit for Tat" one of my favorite Stan and Ollie films.How do you do!
yes, it's possible to see this with Albanian subtitles (by lee_eisenberg)
Over the past year or two I've been making an effort to see as many Academy Award-nominated titles as possible. The latest is Laurel & Hardy's "Tit for Tat", a sequel to "Them Thar Hills". In this case, they've opened an electrical repair shop next door to the husband and wife whom they antagonized in the previous outing, and a misunderstanding causes back-and-forth revenge. Stan and Ollie do their usual stuff, unaware that there's a shoplifter about.It's so simple but so hilarious. Just goes to show why L&H were probably the greatest comedy duo <more>
"Tip Your Hat" : another orgy of mutual destruction and physical insult. (by weezeralfalfa)
Ideally, you should have seen "Them Thar Hills" recently, as this is a sequel to it, involving the same 4 main characters: Stan ,Ollie, Charlie Hall, and Mae Busch, as Charlie's wife. But, that's not really necessary to enjoy this tale of tit for tat by L&H, warring against Charlie, involving their nearby electronics and grocery stores, respectively. As in "Them Thar Hills" and "Big Business", for example, the boys clearly get the worst of the exchange: not only the property damage and physical insults, but they very carelessly left their open store <more>
unattended, which drew shoplifters. At first, one fellow takes just what he can carry. Then, he brings a wheelbarrow. The final time, he parked a moving van in front of their store! Very strangely, the boys pay no attention, even when they clearly see him taking things. Obviously, they wont be in business very long with that attitude. During their war, Charlie mostly destroyed property, whereas, the boys mostly heaped physical and oral insults on Charlie, such as dumping a big can of lard supposedly on his head. As in some of their other films, they usually stood there and allowed these insults to be completed. ... ,......Charlie's wife has a subsidiary, but important role, as the object of Charlie's jealousy, which starts the tit for tat war. Charlie saw Ollie come down the stairs with Mae, being cordial with each other. Charlie naturally assumed they were engaged in a clandestine relationship. In fact, Ollie was stranded on the top floor, outside her window, trying to put bulbs in their electric sign, when the ladder he used to get there was no longer present. Mae happened to be in the room then, and heard his distress calls. She had happy memories of their drunk spree, in "Them Thar Hills", so, was cordial with him, inviting him to descend the stairs after entering her room.........At one point, Ollie says to Stan that they are engaged in a tit for tat. Stan tips his hat, as this was what he thought he heard. .......See it in B&W or it's colorized version. I watched the latter.
Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are the most famous comedy duo in history, and deservedly so, so I am happy to see any of their films. Ollie and Stan have just opened a new Electrical Supplies store, and feeling friendly they decide to say "hello" to the business next door, at Hall's Grocery. They were not expecting to see Mr. and Mrs. Hall Charlie Hall, Mae Busch again remember them from Them Thar Hills , and he warns them to stay away from them. Unfortunately an argument begins when Ollie ends up on the Halls' window sill because of the basement elevator , having to go <more>
down their stairs, and Mr. Hall thinks he was doing something with her. So the rest of the film sees Hall going into Ollie and Stan to do something to them, and them doing vice versa, and while the two boys leave their electrical store, it is slowly being cleared out. So Ollie, Stan and Hall are throwing things at each other, covering each other in things, breaking things and much more silly and childish, but utterly funny things. Filled with wonderful slapstick and all classic comedy you could want from a black and white film, it is an enjoyable film. It was nominated the Oscar for for Best Short Subject, Comedy. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy were number 7 on The Comedians' Comedian. Very good!
very familiar material but still great fun (by MartinHafer)
Those who have seen a lot of Laurel and Hardy will most likely see that this movie isn't especially original. The plot involving an argument gone awry with the neighboring shop keeper is very reminiscent of their silent film, BIG BUSINESS except in this case they are arguing and becoming VERY destructive with Charlie Hall instead of James Finlayson AND there is the plot element of the jealous husband that was added to TIT FOR TAT. But, despite this lack of originality, the movie is still great fun and it is absolutely wonderful watching the 3 men literally destroy each other's <more>
businesses over absolutely nothing! This movie is certainly a sight to behold as their behavior gets more and more and more out of control as the film progresses!
This is what 'Laurel & Hardy' is all about! (by Boba_Fett1138)
This movie perfectly shows the reasons why I like Laurel & Hardy pictures so much. It has got a great silly story, well timing and some great comical moments, all perfectly executed by the characters.The story is very, very simple but it works oh so well and is oh so strong. Basically the movie is about Stan and Olie, who just opened an electrical repair store, having a small war with their neighbor the grocer. Basically the movie is about the two parties taking constantly revenge on the other, in a comical hilarious way. This movie is a direct and the only sequel to a previous Laurel <more>
& Hardy movie, namely; "Them Thar Hills". The returning joke of the costumer who robs the store every time Laurel & Hardy went away is absolutely hilarious.The simple story of the movie is extremely well executed and makes this movie one of the most enjoyable Laurel & Hardy shorts.8/10http://bobafett1138.blogspot.com/
