JITTERBUGS (1943) (DVD)
Starring:  Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Vivian Blaine
Directed By:  Malcolm St. Clair

THIS PRODUCT IS MANUFACTURED ON DEMAND USING REGION FREE DVD-R RECORDABLE MEDIA.

Considered the best of the many Laurel and Hardy films, JITTERBUGS finds the legendary comic duo fronting the traveling Laurel and Hardy Zoot Suit Band. In their travels, they find themselves taking a young woman, Susan (Vivian Blaine), under their wing when she relates how she and her mother have been scammed out of their savings by the dastardly Bennett (Douglas Fowley). Laurel and Hardy come up with an elaborate sting to get Susans money back and exact a much-needed comeuppance for the evil Bennett. Hardy passes himself off as a southern gentleman, while Laurel dons womens clothes as Susans frowsy aunt. As one might expect, things dont go exactly as planned, involving a chase through and around a New Orleans riverboat.

(*½); Laurel and Hardy help nightclub singer Vivian Blaine recover money from swindlers. Latter-day outing is mildly pleasant to start, has a decent bit here and there, but is pretty weak on the whole (including the songs), and feels longer than its 74 minutes. Previously filmed as "Arizona to Broadway."
