Anthony Mack's 1929 comedy with the anarchist gang, which we love in German as »Die Kleine Rascals«, shows how very well-intentioned advice from adults not only comes to nothing, but can also lead directly to chaos. Laurel and Hardy's slapstick comedy »Leave 'em Laughing« also has chaos as a method as well as an end goal. The clever comedian Theo Lingen once remarked: "You must have often wondered why so much has to go wrong in the films of Mr. Laurel and Mr. Hardy. Well, the answer to this question is easy to find. The deep meaning of all comedy is to put the world that has gone haywire back in order. In order for that to happen, however, a clean sheet must first be made. Everything that disturbs the harmony of the world must be radically cleared away, in an act of liberation that relieves and cheers«.
