'Lost' Second Reel of Classic Laurel and Hardy Film Found

Second reel of Laurel and Hardyís The Battle of the Century recovered: thatís better than a pie in the face


But until now, the fight, and the film it belongs to, have been truncated. The Battle of the Century was formed of two reels, and much of it has been missing since the silent era. The fight itself, or at least most of it, had been preserved, but the rest was not to be found. The first reel was discovered in the late 1970s, but the second reel, which contains the piefight, has been unseen for decades longer.

This weekend, according to reports, the discovery was announced to a group of silent film experts at the Mostly Lost film workshop in Culpeper, Virginia. It seems that the footage was disocvoered by composer and historian Jon Mirsalis among the Gordon Berkow collection Ė and that Serge Bromberg of Lobster Films will be taking custody of it for preservation work.
