    You just can't beat those Hal Roach shorts.
    A definite purchase.

    Marvin Hatley did indeed compose Laurel and Hardy's “Ku-Ku” song and scored many Roach films, but the vast majority of the tunes burned into our consciousness from watching L and H, Our Gang and the rest were composed by Leroy Shield. These were notably recorded in original arrangements by the Dutch group The Beau Hunks on two CD sets in the 1990s.

    This is a great alert from Paul Penna. This 2 CD set is absolutely a "Must Own" for those who loved these compositions by Leroy Shield. Anyone who hasn't heard these recordings will find themselves amazed, charmed and smiling. A real treasure.

    It's great that so much Thelma Todd material is finally being officially released in such fine condition. Not only ClassicFlix's complete set of Todd/Kelly shorts, but also the first volume of Charley Chase two-reelers from Sprocket Vault, as well as their complete collection of Todd/Pitts shorts due out in October. Then there's James Neibaur's book on the films of Todd/Pitts/Kelly (McFarland Publishers) that's coming out in December.

    Nope - not yet. All depends on how well volume 1 sells.
