When it comes to the Classical era of Hollywood, one would be hard-pressed to find a funnier act than that of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. Known for their slapstick comedy, the duo consisted of the childlike, British Laurel and the pompous, American Hardy. The two officially became a team in 1927 when they appeared in the silent short film “Putting Pants on Philip.” In the following 23 years, they would go on to appear in 107 films together until their retirement from the screen in 1950. The following clip from British Pathé features a rare interview of Laurel & Hardy from 1947. We won’t spoil it, but there’s a classic piece of their humor towards the end that will definitely put a smile on your face! We loved seeing two of our favorites on screen again. Take a look.
