Great Photos of Stan Laurel and/or Oliver Hardy

Number three hundred and seven in a series…

Here's your reminder: Tomorrow night, Turner Classic Movies is running a bunch of the Laurel and Hardy films that were made in other languages but with Stan and Ollie (and some other members of the American cast) speaking their lines phonetically…but it's not all in other tongues. TCM is running English-language films followed by their Spanish or French redos so you can compare 'em. What a great idea. It starts at 5 PM on my satellite dish but may commence at a different time on your set. All of the foreign versions contain additional scenes that were not in the domestic versions…and how often do you get to see Laurel and Hardy footage you've never seen before? I'd rather watch those guys when I can't understand them than Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell when I can.
