    krtek a houby how's it going to end?

    It comes across like the sort of screen 2 films you'd see on the beeb in the 80s/90s. Would never have expected Coogan and Reilly as cast but they certainly look the part.

    I never knew about the end of Laurel and Hardy's career so I might be interested in a 'watch it on TV' kind of way.

    My dad got their autographs as a kid during that tour when they came to newcastle. too poor to actually get into the show. Buster Keaton as well- but not sure if it was at the same time. Havent seen his autograph book for about 30 years sadly.

    Part of this was filmed in Worthing, so I'll have to watch it. :D

    There's a shot of The Lido at 1:26 in the trailer -

    i have a soft spot for them - great childhood memories, they made me laugh.
    i don't think they were nasty or mean in real life either - or at least 'reported'.

    Look forward to seeing this too .

    I remember back when I was a child watching Laurel&Hardy , Buster Keaton , Charlie Chaplin etc on a Sunday morning show , I may have got confused but I think it may have been presented by Bob Monkhouse , I know he was a big silent movies fan .

    I revisited a load of L&H stuff recently with my kids, and it's still brilliant. We ended up visiting the Laurel and Hardy Museum in Ulverston on the back of it, which I'd recommend to all fans of L&H, and all fans of shonky museums.

    Unsure about whether I would love this film tbh, although the performances look remarkable from what I've seen.

    The filming in Worthing took place last May.

    I always remember hearing that right up to his death Stan Laurel’s phone number was listed in the area directory. He would always answer, ‘Laurel residence’ and spend time chatting with fans.
    What a wonderful person he must have been.

    They made me laugh as a kid and I still laugh now.
    It was a scene in one of their shorts that still inspires all the lads in our family to take hard boiled eggs and nuts to anyone of us if we are in hospital.

    Heh, i too recently visited the laurel and hardy museum. Highlights were the weird stan and ollie statues and stan's mangle. Also impressive was the young lad on the door who told us he had just watched every film for 83 hours in a row for charity. 20181118_115237.jpg 20181118_115648.jpg 20181118_115618.jpg
