When two people meet and produce comedy it is the strongest force in the world. That is my quote by the way. I give you Laurel and Hardy....
A comedy partnership that happened almost by accident in those production line Hollywood . Indeed the early (films) partnership of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy got the dynamic wrong.
And as a reverse to real life the success came when Ollie became the 'Boss' and Stan became the .... 'Other'
It's true that Stan was a mastermind of comedy and with the look of Ollie.... And Al Roach...
They became the comedy superstars of their day.
Stan had appeared in over 50 films before he met Ollie.
And Ollie starred in over 250 silent films most of them lost or forgotten.
The importance of Al Roach is debatable?
I think he was very important.... An early George Martin thank you very much.
Laurel and Hardy got voted whatever (10th?) as the funniest comedy duo...?
They are the funniest comedy duo that ever lived and that's that!
They had loyalty, whatever happened, they always stuck together.... And maybe that's it... My two favourite qualities are humour and loyalty.....
Why that's another fine mess.......
(I have wet myself watching Blockheads....) ❤️
