Laurel & Hardy
Laurel & Hardy
In more than 100 films, Stan Laurel {1890-1965} and Oliver Hardy {1892-1957} bungled their way through countless comic misadventures as masters of slapstick. The beloved comedians made a smooth transition from silent films into the new world of "talking pictures," as audiences delighted in Laurel's British working class accent and Hardy's Southern accent and beautiful singing voice. The pair even learned to speak their lines phonetically in Italian, Spanish, German, and Russian, for international versions of their films.
