backtrack; Sons of the desert (1933)

sons

Only slightly over an hour in length but still rather slow-moving, and seldom more than mildly funny. Subservient husbands try to outsmart their shrewish wives, just to find themselves in trouble when their »clever« schemes backfire.

I’m unsure as to why, but I find many later comedies more obviously trite than several of the silent ones – maybe I expect more than I should. Not in my book of marital mishaps.

  1. Laurel and Hardy seemed to be funnier when I was a child. Maybe the comedy is just too infantile.

  2. I found them absolutely hilarious when I was a boy. Not anymore, alas.
