Towed in a Hole

I’ve always been a big fan of Laurel and Hardy, and Towed In A Hole is one of my favorite shorts. As is usual in many of their films, Stan gets in trouble with Ollie, and in this story, Stan is sent “to his room” where he ends up fooling around with a saw. You can see it at about 5:30. While it isn’t exactly musical, it’s hilarious. It also offers a look into how the idea of the musical saw may have gotten started. Enjoy!
