STAN LAUREL AND OLIVER HARDY IN WAY OUT WEST..1937,,VERY RARE ORIGINAL POSTER

Plot


Stan and Ollie, after consorting with Seymore "Sy" Roberts, an old prospector, have been entrusted to deliver the deed to a gold mine the prospector discovered to the man's daughter, Mary Roberts (Rosina Lawrence), a poor young woman living in Brushwood Gulch who is consistently victimized by her cruel guardians, saloon owner Mickey Finn (James Finlayson), and his equally-cruel saloon-singer wife, Lola Marcel (Sharon Lynne).



Traveling by stage coach, they attempt to flirt with the woman (Vivien Oakland) who is riding with them. She rebuffs the pair, and upon arriving in Brushwood Gulch, she complains to her husband, the town's sheriff (Stanley Fields). The angry sheriff orders the pair to leave on the next coach out of town, or else they'll be "riding out of here in a hearse". Stan and Ollie promise to do so once they have completed their mission.



After dancing to "At the Ball, That's All" by The Avalon Boys, Stan and Ollie arrive at Mickey Finn's saloon. When Mickey Finn learns why they're here, he has Lola play Mary in order to hijack the deed from them. Stan and Ollie have never seen Mary before, and are duped by their charade. However, before leaving town, they encounter the real Mary Roberts and immediately try to get the deed back. The evil Finns won't surrender the deed, however, and a major struggle ensues as Stan and Ollie attempt to reclaim the deed. Stan manages to grab it, but Lola traps him in the bedroom and wrests the deed from him by tickling him into hysterics. After further chasing, Mickey and Lola manage to seal the deed into their safe. Ollie calls for the police, but the police turn out to be the angry sheriff, who chases Stan and Ollie out of town.



Outside the town, Stan and Ollie plan to sneak back into Brushwood Gulch at night to reclaim the deed. They arrive at the saloon and, after a series of mishaps, manage to make it inside. They are met by Mary, who helps them open the safe, grab the deed and escape before Mickey Finn can intervene. Outside the town again, and accompanied by Mary, the happy trio sing "We're Going to Go Way Down to Dixie" as they head off into the sunset.



Unlike most of Laurel and Hardy's films and shorts, the story ends has a happy ending as opposed to the usual 'unfortunate ending'.

THE NOTEBOOK final scene,,,MOVIE CLASSIC

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDbjhFlAj6I&feature=related
A romantic love story viewed over many years was the subject of this intense tearjerker. Young, privileged and pretty Southern debutante Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) shared a passionate rain-soaked kiss after an idyllic afternoon rowboating through a spectacular duck-filled setting with earthy mill worker Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling), as she learned for the first time that he had written her 365 love letters (one each day for a year) - although her domineering mother had intercepted them and disapproved of his 'low-class' status. Noah professed his love on the dock: "It wasn't over. It still isn't over!". Later, another emotional scene was the moment that Allie finally made a choice between Noah and her parent-approved fiancee Lon Hammond, Jr. (James Marsden) - and drove to Noah's fixed-up mansion to move in and be with him. In the final scenes, it was revealed that nursing home patient Allie Hamilton/Calhoun (Gena Rowlands) had severe Alzheimer's Disease and could only remember the story of their love for a few minutes. She and frail heart patient Noah or "Duke" Calhoun (James Garner) had met and fallen in love when in their teens - in old age, Noah repeatedly rekindled their love by re-reading from her old faded notebook diary (written by Allie as a present to Noah years earlier, with the handwritten dedication: "Read this to me, and I'll come back to you"). After one of the readings telling of their love for each other, Allie briefly remembered their love during a special candlelight dinner in the nursing home when they shared a dance together - Allie requested: "Do you think I can be her tonight?" - but then she rapidly 'forgot' and panicked. In the final scene in the rest home, she remembered him as they held hands in her bedroom, where he promised he would always be there and never leave her. She asked him: "Do you think that our love can create miracles?" He replied: "Yes, I do. That's what brings you back to me each time." She asked a second question. "Do you think our love can take us away together?" He responded: "I think our love can do anything we want it to." They fell asleep in the same bed, and passed away together

OFF TO SEE THE MUNCHKINS

About 700 patrons visited Hollywood Palms on Saturday to watch "The Wizard of Oz" and meet three of the original Munchkins.


new Jerry Maren, Margaret Pellegrini and Karl Slover stand behind Ted Bulthaup, president of Hollywood Palms and Blvd. Bulthaup was a major force in getting the Munchkins a star on the Hollywood Walk of hss-Naperville, where three of the four surviving actors who played Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz made an appearance.



"It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us to meet them," Finnegan said. "We don't know how long they'll be around."



Karl Slover, 92, Jerry Maren, 90, and Margaret Pellegrini, 88, worked Saturday's crowd for hours, mingling with fans and moviegoers. The three Munchkins signed autographs and photos for attendees of all ages.



Although meet-and-greets are nothing new for the trio, they still enjoy interacting with fans of The Wizard of Oz. Slover especially enjoys his trips to Naperville.



"I think it is wonderful seeing a place really in love with all of this," Slover said. "I enjoy doing this type of stuff."



The Munchkins were in Naperville because Hollywood Palms was showing The Wizard of Oz on its largest screen. About 700 people bought tickets to attend the theater's four showings of the 1939 classic.



Many of the moviegoers came with family members stretching three generations. Dianne Bastian attended the movie with her daughter, Michelle, and granddaughter, Angelina Harmony. Bastian, who lives in Riverwoods, was born two years after the release of The Wizard of Oz.



"This has been a movie through my lifetime," Bastian said. "I'm thrilled to share these moments through the generations."



Elizabeth Maren, Jerry's wife, said she sees the most joy from the young children who attend the meet-and-greets. She said the children know all the words to the songs and can repeat moments of dialogue from memory.



The trip to Naperville also gave Pellegrini the chance to meet new family members. The Munchkin has two children, but a large number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.



"I just saw a couple of nephews who I've never seen before," Pellegrini said. "It was exciting. At least I learned about who died and who's still alive."



Maeve Deloughery brought her 7-year-old and 6-year-old children to meet the Munchkins and see the movie. She said the meet-and-greet was the main attraction of the day, and she found it amazing that some of the original cast members are still alive.



"It puts it all in perspective," Deloughery said.



Not everyone who attended the event waited to meet the cast members. Kris Kaminshi, of Batavia, didn't want to stand in the additional line with her 5-year-old twins. But Kaminshi, her children and her mother were still excited for the chance to see The Wizard of Oz in a movie theater.



"I've only seen it on TV," said Marilyn Barry, Kaminshi's mother. "This is going to be a real fun experience."
