I have a couple of silent era Laurel and Hardy two reelers released by Blackhawk as non-striped silent releases. I therefore wondered if any of these were ONLY released in silent form, or can all of them also be found in sound versions with music tracks, as with (e.g.) 'Big Business'?

Adrian I have often wondered this too I’ve seen the silent versions on vhs years ago I’m sure they were put to music.

Adrain, the L&H silents were later striped-for-sound when the Vitaphone tracks became available - Others, BIG BUSINESS, HABEAS CORPUS and YOUR DARN TOOTIN' contained Blackhawk scores usually by Wm. Perry, Gaylorde Carter and Stu Oderman - Cheers, Shorty
