Most of reel 2 was also found a year or so ago, there was a screening in Buffalo - The lead-up to the piefight is shown - So, we have about 98% of the film - Thing is to locate HATS OFF in any form or length - Shorty

Yeah, re-construction is all good and well - Finding at least a 9.5 fragment would be nice - Cheers, Shorty

Check this Battle of the Century out:

He dubs in actual sound effects from Laurel and Hardy films onto Silent films. It is neat and gives a sense of the comedy nuances you get with sound that you miss with silent sometimes. Hilarious. He does a bunch of them.

This fight sequence was used later in their talkie 'Any Old Port' when Stan fights Walter Long.
