My computer wouldn't open this link.
Maybe this will work better as a link to Beau Hunks on You Tube: YouTube link

I recall somebody making 28 mm figures of Stan and Ollie in the Foreign Legion, but I think they went out of production before I could buy them. Is this a reference to the original set, or has somebody brought out a new set of figures of Stan and Ollie?

And, yes, if you've never seen Beau Hunks, it is very much worth watching!

Another cheer for "Beau Hunks," one of the best of the most always brilliant L&H films.

If anyone hasn't seen it, follow Dave's link and have a blast!
