Letters from Stan

Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy have made me laugh the most. As a child, I watched a few of their movies in theatres, but it was with the advent of videotapes that I managed to catch up with their entire output spread over four decades. Even today, when I recall any of the scenes, I can’t suppress my laughter.

Via “Letters of Note’, I was delighted to come across this site that has catalogued letters from Stan Laurel from 1918 to 1964. The letters, claims the site, will serve to ‘better understand his life and celebrate his comedic genius.’

Which means that I have to commit myself to read 874 documents in the archives. Here’s another fine mess the pair has got me into.
