From the FCS Book of Little-Known Facts (Laurel and Hardy)

One of the last photographs taken of the legendary comedy duo Laurel and Hardy, in 1956

Laurel and Hardy were one of the most important comedy duos of the 20th century. Not only were they one of the few artists to transition well from vaudeville to the screen, but they had a career that spanned decades and the two stuck together until old age. Their relationship was initially one of business. It wasn’t until their final tours that they grew closer to one another and actually became friends. By the time Hardy was at the end of his life he’d lost more than a hundred pounds, taking away his classic rotund look, however he said that there was nothing he could do about his illness so it didn’t upset him.
