We do not get the opportunity to review a lot of film books here in the Balcony, although we DO read a lot of the darn things. The biography of Henry "Oh, THAT guy!" Brandon is cause for celebration, and we take a look at it. Take a break from singin' opera in the streets and read!


In this week's installment of the LAUREL & HARDY FUN HOUSE, we take a little look at the new Stan & Ollie film.

Well, it's a brand new year and we've spiffed up the Balcony with the February Calendar, a new Laurel & Hardy Fun House, and some new reviews. So go read already!

New review this week, The Giant Behemoth, a movie that doesn't get a lot of love except from us - it's a Balcony favorite!
