Stan and Ollie....One last time

Here is a picture from the last photo shoot that featured Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy. The year was 1956. Stan was slowly improving from a minor stroke. Oliver Hardy was ordered by his Doctor to loose a LOT of weight. The Doctor ordered him on a severe crash diet. His heart could not take the strain, and shortly after this photo was taken, Ollie suffered a series of strokes, wasted away and left us. Completely different looking from the beloved comedian we all knew in this photo, he none the less had the same smile and Puckish glimmer in those eyes.

A Haunting We Will......GO?

No matter how you slice it, no one will ever agree on the entertainment value of the post Hal Roach Laurel & Hardy features.
I have to share with you the observation that my Tent, The Saps at Sea (located in lovely California), recently screened this much maligned film and the group LOVED IT! Not Liked it, LOVED IT. So go figure.
Here is a wacky insert from that movie.
