Best Comedy Movies of 1929 : Unaccustomed As We Are

Unaccustomed As We Are

7.1/10 IMDB

Notable for being Laurel and Hardy's first sound film (hence the title, drawn from the popular cliché "Unaccustomed as we are to public speaking ..."). The soundtrack was lost for fifty years until it was traced on disc in the late 1970s. This is the first film in which Hardy says to Laurel, "Why don't you do something to help me!" which immediately became a catch-phrase, repeated in numerous subsequent films. Also heard for the first time is Stan's distinctive, high-pitched whimper of distress. The plot of "Unaccustomed As We Are" was expanded into a full-length feature, Block-Heads, in 1938.

Starring: Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Edgar Kennedy, Mae Busch, Thelma Todd ..
Directed by: Lewis R. Foster, Hal Roach
Release date: 1929-05-04
