It's Labor Day in the U.S.A., we celebrate the working stiffs, and it brings to mind comedic duo Laurel and Hardy in "The Music Box" working harder than anyone ever has in the history of cinema. Hired movers in the plot, they cart a recalcitrant spinnet piano up the longest set of residential stairs in all of Los Angeles. Oddly for our instant tear down city, these steps are still here, betwixt 923-5 Vendome St. ascending to Decanso St at the top of a Sisyphean hill in the now trendy Silver Lake district.
