    I got the heads-up on this off my brother, from the latest Empire magazine. RRP is £200 (ouch!) Apparently the disks will also be available seperately for around £15.99, but the boxset contains an exclusive extra disk.

    Amazon have it on pre-order for £149.00 - release date 3rd May.

    If anyone has any further details of disk content, can they post here - ta.

    Thankfully it's there on disc 16 (or 17 ?). It would have been farcical to omit that classic (amongst all the other classics).

    my problem with this boxset is the included 'coloured' versions. I would have no intentions whatsoever of watching them, and it feels like they've been added in there to pad things out a bit, and give an excuse to charge more.

    probably still have to buy it at some point though

    I've always been a huge Laurel and Hardy fan but mostly of the short 20-40 minute talking episodes. Many of the films are superb but a few of them I wasn't so keen on because of too much "padding"; boring musical bits without the boys and I'm not so interested in these. For this reason I was very happy to recently pick up an excellent boxset in Amsterdam called "L&H Talkies" - it's six discs, 41 episodes - all the Hal Roach short talkies between 1929 and 1935 for 60EUR (40GBP)- I can thoroughly recommend this set and it's a bargain in my opinion!!

    It's all english language with optional Dutch subtitles.
