Irv Hyatt is hoping to bring the color 16mm footage to DVD, along with a new documentary on the Hollywood Victory Caravan.
This "rediscovered" film material is finally being made available to a wide audience for the first time.
For those of us that were too young to have seen Laurel and Hardy live on stage you can watch a scene in color using the link below. The film is from May 2, 1942, a part of the new preview for this Kickstarter project on the Hollywood Victory Caravan. Groucho did a sketch with Olivia de Havilland and also did the song "Dr. Hackenbush" at each performance. Laurel and Hardy did their driver's license sketch and of course James Cagney did Yankee Doodle Dandy.
For information on the project and a "peek" at part of the actual footage, go to Kickstarter and search "Laurel and Hardy".

The movie footage of the Caravan has had limited showings at Sons Conventions and only one public showing at the National Theater in London in 1984. This will be the first time it will be made available for viewing. Please support this campaign by sharing this preview.
