Last month, I sat down with my sons to watch the 1932 Laurel and Hardy classic “The Music Box.” My boys aren’t big fans of black and white films, so I wasn’t sure if the deliberately paced comedy style of eighty plus years ago would appeal to a twelve year old and ten year old in 2015.
Funny is funny, no matter what generation it is. My sons laughed hysterically at the film. When it was over, they asked me to play it again. The two comedians, who had both passed away years before I was born, were making 21st Century children chuckle just as much as they did when Hollywood was in its infancy.
