Laurel & Hardy! Just the names alone brings to my mind the most talented comedy duo ever, bar none! And this, "The Music Box" is probably the finest of their work, though there are others that are very close! Too many to mention in fact.I've spent the last month or two having a Laurel and Hardy film season, and I watched around 35 of their films, and naturally I laughed many many times....theres nothing better to cheer you up. "The Music Box" itself stands out-it was the film that won them an oscar, wonderfully written, and marvellously filmed! Those steps would put most people off just to climb them on their own, but with a piano!!!Classic! If you haven't seen this movie, and there can't be many who haven't, see it as soon as you can, and when you want a good old fashioned laugh! 9.5/10

The Synopsis for The Music Box (1932) 720p
The Laurel & Hardy Moving Co. have a challenging job on their hands (and backs): hauling a player piano up a monumental flight of stairs to Prof. von Schwarzenhoffen's house. Their task is complicated by a sassy nursemaid and, unbeknownst to them, the impatient Prof. von Schwarzenhoffen himself. But the biggest problem is the force of gravity, which repeatedly pulls the piano back down to the bottom of the stairs. Finally, the irate Professor explodes in fury to discover the "mechanical blunderbuss" in his home, not knowing it was a surprise birthday present from his wife.

Unbeatable, classic, laugh out loud comedy...Reviewed bydash-wortleyVote: 9/10
WC Fields at his funniest attempted to snooker others and, at first hoisted on his own petard, was eventually triumphant. Chaplin attacked inhumanity with the scrambling simplistic reactions of his fabulous tramp.
Laurel and Hardy dealt with objects in a constantly failing attempt to get things done. Every manner of mischance and misstep took place in their films and none was better accomplished than "The Music Box." This is one of the most riotously hilarious films ever made.
This is Laurel and Hardy's Oscar winning short film. It is their only short that ever won an Academy Award. I must admit that I liked it, but it is definitely not my favorite Laurel and Hardy short.
The short starts with explaining to us that Laurel and Hardy start their own business. After this we see a woman buying a piano that has to be delivered at her home. The Laurel & Hardy Moving Co. has to do that. The woman lives on a hill and the piano in a box must be carried up a stairs. On the way Laurel and Hardy have some trouble with a woman, a professor and of course a cop. The stairs itself causes some problems as well.
The parts on the stairs are pretty funny. The predictable gags work and make sure some of the unpredictable ones work even better. There is a lot of nice physical action, some special effects and a priceless kicking scene involving Laurel, but the short itself is a little too long. The musical number near the end makes up for that, but it can not make this short the masterpiece some people say it is.
