A sexy showgirl is inexplicably bound in the background of this Spike Milligan sketch, taken from Q5’s first season.
While trying to help their neighbour, Mrs Kennedy (Thelma Todd), Laurel & Hardy manage to set her dress on fire. Wearing just her heels and underwear, the poor Mrs Kennedy is then whisked into a large chest and hidden away as Mr Hardy’s bad-tempered wife approaches. Finally, Mr. Kennedy makes an unfortunate appearance. Piquant shenanigans from L&H’s first sound film, UNACCUSTOMED AS WE ARE (1929).
