NBR: Laurel & Hardy

I have finally found the crown jewel of my DVD collection:


The films of Laurel & Hardy have been tragically absent from DVD, with the notable exception of this collection from Turner Classic Movies.  The complete films of Laurel & Hardy number 106, although three of those films are considered lost.  I own every commercially available Laurel & Hardy film on VHS (including a few tapes bought in England that I had to pay to convert to Region 1).  But getting them all together – the best available transfers along with newly-discovered and never-released footage and films – has been a dream I thought may never come to pass.
