Possibly the most sought-after “lost” film after London after Midnight, the 1927 Laurel and Hardy short The Battle of the Century, supervised by Leo McCarey, was discovered in nearly complete form last year. We’re proud to open our McCarey program with this rediscovered masterwork, accompanied by three other classic McCarey silent shorts.
