    Way Out West is a 1937 Laurel and Hardy comedy film. Stan (Stan Laurel) and Ollie (Oliver Hardy) have been entrusted to deliver the deed of a gold mine to the deceased prospector's daughter Mary Roberts (Rosina Lawrence). Mary works for her cruel unofficial guardians, Brushwood Gulch saloon owner Mickey Finn (James Finlayson) and his saloon-singer wife, Lola Marcel (SharonLynn), who keep her in a slave-like existence by forcing her to do all the chores. Stan and Ollie are traveling towards Brushwood Gulch; Stan on foot, leading a mule dragging a travois, on which Ollie lies. As they ford a river, the travois detaches from the mule, leaving Ollie stranded in the water. He starts to wade then completely disappears into asink holein the river bottom. They hitch a ride on a stagecoach and attempt to flirt with a woman passenger (Vivien Oakland). Upon arriving in Brushwood Gulch, she complains to her husband (Stanley Fields), who turns out to be the local sheriff; he threatens the pair by coldly informing them that they will be leaving in a hearse if they do not catch the next coach out of town. So now the real fun begins! It is Laurel & Hardy at their all-time best. Bob will also show a surprise This is Your Life Laurel & Hardy which is priceless. Pre-registration encouraged and appreciated.
