Hal Roach: Female Comedy Teams
Women have been teaming up—and taking pies in the face—for a very long time. The tradition didn’t start with "Laverne and Shirley", or even Lucy & Ethel. Comedy pioneer Hal Roach, under whose watchful eye Laurel and Hardy were partnered in the 1920s, was the mastermind behind two of the earliest teams. Roach first paired Anita Garvin and Marion Byron in the late ‘20s as a female version of Laurel and Hardy; in the early ‘30s, he tried again with Thelma Todd and ZaSu Pitts (with brash Patsy Kelly later replacing mousy Pitts).

"Female Comedy Teams", a new DVD set of Roach short subjects from Filmmuseum Munchen in Germany, will add a dozen of these early films to your video library. If you like to laugh, and laugh hard, you will want to get your hands on this wonderful two-disc set.
The 2-disc DVD set will present a selection of the best shorts in restored versions, most of them have never been released on DVD before.
