Two Tars, directed by James Parrott and released in 1928. A silent film, it largely consists of a 'reciprocal destruction' involving motorists in a traffic jam, which has much inventive mayhem with the destruction of various automobiles.
Sailors on leave, Laurel and Hardy pick up two girls and spend the afternoon driving in the country. They find themselves in the middle of a huge traffic jam. Tempers boil over among the motorists, and soon the street is a mess of mangled cars and car parts.
Chapters — called Tents — of The Sons of the Desert, the international Laurel and Hardy Appreciation Society, all take their names from L films. There are four Two Tars Tents in Solingen, Germany; Guernsey, England; North Illinois/Wisconsin Border; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A fifth Two Tars Tent was established in Reidsville, North Carolina, but is no longer active.
