Two of the grestest names of the early sound era of comedy, Stan & Ollie, are getting a film about their lives together. This is the story of the end of their illustrious career.
Set in an amazing year for England. Everest is conquered and England has a new queen. The year of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. That’s nothing compared to what is happening in the music halls of the same country. One of the best comedy duos of all time, decades after their golden era but still performing because of the love of their art and the partnership that endured over the decades, are performing a tour of England.
There isn’t much to see, yet, apart from the posters. Even so, it does give a great look at what to expect.
The true story of Hollywood’s greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Stan & Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour.
With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille and Ida – a formidable double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.
