Laurel and Hardy

“Laurel and Hardy”

Stan Laurel, of Laurel and Hardy duo, celebrates a birthday today, June 16. He was a hard-working comic genius, writer of all the team’s material. Oliver Hardy, a fine singer and nimble dancer despite his size, spoke his partner’s words and lived by his scripts, but invented a classic comedy character with all his dainty idiosyncrasies and exasperated sighs. “That’s another fine mess you’ve gotten us into!”
