Here's a tasty treat, Scared Silly fans: I recently engaged in a lively conversation with Laurel & Hardy historian, Patrick Vasey wherein we discussed Laurel & Hardy's first full-fledged horror-comedy film Habeas Corpus on his podcast, an extension of his blog, the Laurel & Hardy Blogcast!

As a special bonus, Patrick also spoke with foremost Laurel & Hardy authority Randy Skretvedt to delve into the film's original "sound-on-disc" soundtrack of synchronized music and sound effects accompanyining the short's original 1928 release.

If you want to listen to the podcast interviews straight from Patrick's site, simply click here. You'll also find options on Patrick's site to listen through Spotify, Anchor, Apple Podcasts/iTunes, and Google Podcasts.

Now, here's a brief "comparison video" comparing an upgraded print to a previous one, and highlighting key gags from the film. Enjoy, and stay tuned for my formal written review of Habeas Corpus, coming soon!
