The Lucky Dog is a historically compelling artifact as the first teaming of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy
Okay, so after about 20 years of only seeing the first half of this, the earliest appearance of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy side by side-though unlike their future output not friends yet-on film, I finally got to see The Lucky Dog in its entirety just now on joust.com. While I admit the whole thing is a bit chaotic and frantic, I laughed hard nonetheless during the entire thing especially when the two future teammates were on screen together. The entire thing has a Mack Sennett "anything goes" attitude throughout that just made me guffaw hysterically by myself the whole time. Nothing subtle at all about the comic set pieces like you'd expect from the boys in their future Hal Roach endeavors. Still, well worth seeing just to watch such an enduring comedy team in an initial test of what would become such perfect chemistry of two people ever made in the movies! So yes, on that note, I highly recommend The Lucky Dog.
