Sweet memories watching Laurel and Hardy. As odd a couple as any, the exploits of this bumbling due kept me enthralled all through my childhood and adolescence. This is comedy at its finest, pure unadulterated fun, kept me in good humour.
"Stan and Ollie: The Roots of Comedy: The Double Life of Laurel and Hardy": by Simon Louvish. Oliver Hardy ("Babe" to his family and friends) was my uncle. This cover always makes me smile happily. This is a very fine biography.
Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, comedy duo of Classical Hollywood. They were one of the only acts that were able to make the transition from silent to sound, making primarily visual, slapstick comedy sketches.
