I don’t often do this, but there’s an insane price for the complete Laurel and Hardy collection on Amazon right now; the boxed set originally retailed around two hundred quid. It includes foreign-language versions of some of the shorts made for export, with different supporting casts and, in some cases, extra routines and material.
Plus, these are the decently-mastered DVDs; there’s plenty of L&H material out there, but with little guide to the quality of what you’ll get.

Thank you very much for this heads up.
There are a couple of comments on Amazon;
firstly a big warning label says it has been withdrawn from sale by Amazon for review because of a customer complaint, and then one of the reviews warns that although it is the complete set of disks it is the £99 version with no booklets rather than the £199 uber version. the picture quality is said to be excellent by those who have received it.
Thanks for that… I've amended the main article to include the info.
