We all have favorite comedians and favorite comedy films but what about favorite comedy moments? Is there a scene that just makes you laugh out loud?
For me, the silent movie moment that makes me guffaw until I cry is the famous pants fight in the Laurel and Hardy comedy You‘re Darn Tootin‘ (1928). Slapstick isn’t generally my cup of tea but I laughed and laughed as the assorted characters attacked one another in the trousers. It’s your classic Stan and Ollie tit-for-tat battle taken beyond its logical conclusion. Great stuff.
Please share your favorite silent comedy moments and link to clips or GIFs!
