Laurel and Hardy’s final film sees Laurel inherit a yacht and a private island in the South Seas from his uncle. Our duo set off, but become shipwrecked and land on an island that they name Crusoeland. Atoll K is a rare opportunity to see comedy’s finest pairing on their last adventure, proving that, even with lesser material, they both display true comic genius.
