WAY OUT WEST
(1936; 1 hour, 5 minutes)
Thursday, August 5
**Showing with the short films ONE A.M. (1916, 34 Minutes) starring Charlie Chaplin & PEST FROM THE WEST (1939, 20 Minutes) starring Buster Keaton**
Laurel and Hardy head out west in this classic comic western. Their job: to make sure the daughter of their late buddy receives the deed to a valuable mine. But the moment the boys arrive in Brushwood Gulch, they get mixed up with a villainous schemer who tricks them into turning over the deed to the wrong woman. Before the confusion gets straightened out, Stan and Ollie go through some of their all-time funniest comic routines. A standout among the film's many high points is the comedy team performing the song "Trail of the Lonesome Pine."
