Silent Comedy Classics: Stan And Ollie
Britannia Panopticon, Glasgow.
Laurel and Hardy -- the world's greatest comedy duo -- face an uncertain future as their golden era of Hollywood films remain long behind them. Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring the variety theatres of Britain in 1953. The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can't quite shake the past as long-buried tensions and Oliver Hardy's failing health start to threaten their famous partnership.
