DVD: www.amazon.com thefilmarchive.org Laurel and Hardy were one of the most popular comedy teams of the early Classical Hollywood era of American cinema. Composed of thin, English-born Stan Laurel (1890--1965) and heavy, American-born Oliver Hardy (1892--1957) they became well known during the late 1920s to the mid-1940s for their work in motion pictures; the team also appeared on stage throughout America and Europe. The two comedians first worked together on the film The Lucky Dog. After a period appearing separately in several short films for the Hal Roach studio during the 1920s, they began appearing in movie shorts together in 1926. Laurel and Hardy officially became a team the following year, and soon became Hal Roach's most lucrative stars. Among their most popular and successful films were the features Sons of the Desert (1933), Way Out West (1937), and Block-Heads (1938) and the shorts Big Business (1929), Liberty (1929), and their Academy Award-winning short, The Music Box (1932). The pair left the Roach studio in 1940, then appeared in eight "B" comedies for 20th Century Fox and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer from 1941 to 1945. Disappointed in the films in which they had little creative control, from 1946 to 1950 the team did not appear on film and concentrated on their stage show, embarking on a musical hall tour of England, Ireland and Scotland. They made Atoll K, a French/Italian co-production and their last film, in 1950/1951, before retiring from the screen. In total ...

December 1, 1954 www.amazon.com Watch the full program: thefilmarchived.blogspot.com * There are two Laurel and Hardy museums, one in Laurel's birthplace, Ulverston, United Kingdom, and the other in Hardy's birthplace, Harlem, Georgia, United States * Laurel and Hardy's likenesses have made frequent "cameo appearances" in animated cartoons and comic strips since the 1930s. They featured in a Laurel and Hardy cartoon series by Hanna-Barbera and made a guest appearance in The New Scooby-Doo Movies. From Mickey Mouse to Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies to Woody Woodpecker, caricatured versions of the comedians appeared as walk-on characters and sometimes in supporting roles in cartoons from the Golden Age of American animation. Laurel and Hardy have also turned up in more recent works such as the Asterix album Obelix and Co., Mark Dindal's animated film Cats Don't Dance (1997), Berkeley Breathed's comic strip Bloom County, Gary Larson's comic strip The Far Side and The Simpsons episode The Wandering Juvie. * In one of the few instance of incorporating the famous duo's visages into popular literature, author/illustrator Maurice Sendak's In the Night Kitchen (1970) showed three identical Oliver Hardy figures as bakers preparing cakes for the morning in his award-winning children's book and is treated as a clear example of "interpretative illustration" wherein the comedians' inclusion harkened back to the author's own childhood. Sendak described his early upbringing as sitting ...

Laurel & Hardy's 'Another Fine Mess' (with the Boston Barbers) b/w 'The Stan & Ollie Serenade' (also with the Boston Barbers), was released as a vinyl single in 1976 on the United Artists record label. It made no impact on the British music charts whatsoever - although it was released here. In fact, very little information is available about this song on the Web. I believe it was also included on an album entitled 'The Very Best of Laurel & Hardy'. As well as being Stan and Ollie's catch-phrase (although it actually wasn't used very often in their films), Another Fine Mess is also the title of one of their 1930s short comedy films. It is based on a play by Arthur J. Jefferson, Stan Laurel's father, which he wrote in 1908.
