Planned as the last Laurel & Hardy film (which fortunately turned out not to be the case), this remains one of their best features. From its opening sequence- Stan guarding the front, twenty years after the end of World War I hostilities -- through the chance re-meeting of Stan and a horribly domesticated Ollie, to the climax of disaster caused by Stan's good intentions, Blockheads (co- scripted by Harry Langdon) is a triumphant exploration of the quality and kind of relationship between Stan and Ollie that underlies their best comedy.
