Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy - Remastered by Carlos Diaz
Careening from one hilarious escapade to the next, the comic team of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy entertained countless movie audiences with their hapless and endearing antics. Laurel and Hardy each achieved some measure of success as individual performers, but it was their on-screen pairing by legendary film producer Hal Roach that transformed their careers. Between 1927 and 1932 the duo made more than sixty comedy shorts for Roach, successfully navigating the changeover from silent films to talking pictures. They marked their feature-film debut in 1931 with Pardon Us and a year later starred in The Music Box—the first film to win the Academy Award for Short Subject (Comedy). Rather than adhering to the typical straight man/fall guy comedic formula, Laurel and Hardy functioned as equally bumbling partners who teetered between conformity and anarchy to great comic effect.
