Laurel and Hardy classic at BYU film series March 23

The Brigham Young University Motion Picture Archive Film Series will show “The Music Box” on Friday, March 23 at 7 p.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium on level one.

The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the movie will be about 90 minutes long.

“The Music Box” stars Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Billy Gilbert and others in the 1932 film directed by James Parrott. This now-classic tale of the boys delivering a piano to a home atop a long, steep flight of stairs was Laurel and Hardy’s only Academy Award-winning film.

Also to be shown are classic shorts that include “Brats” (1930), where Laurel and Hardy play their own children; “Helpmates” (1931), when Laurel tries to help Hardy clean up his home after a “wild party” before his wife returns; and “Going Bye-Bye” (1934), that has the boys trying to get out of town after helping convict a criminal who manages to get his own unique revenge.
