    The only movie I've seen with one of them is the 1925 silent film version of "The Wizard of Oz," which isn't actually an adaptation of the book at all, but just a movie with the same title and a few references thrown in. Oliver Hardy plays a bad guy who disguises himself as a Tin Woodman. It's a really stupid movie.

    I think that they were okay as solo performers, but it took them getting together for something magical to happen, comedy wise i.m.o.

    They were just funny as heck. The only duo that made me laugh uncontrollably. I noticed that on Gilligan's Island, Gilligan and the Skipper acted like them sometimes.

    I think I encountered the cartoon before I realised they were actual people.

    Winner of the 2017 Ryan Tubridy Show Listener's Choice Award at the Irish Book Awards.

    John Connolly recreates the golden age of Hollywood for an intensely compassionate study of the tension between commercial demands and artistic integrity and the human frailties behind even the greatest of artists.

    An extraordinary reimagining of the life of one of the greatest screen comedians the world has ever known: a man who knew both adoration and humiliation; who loved, and was loved in turn; who betrayed, and was betrayed; who never sought to cause pain to others, yet left a trail of affairs and broken marriages in his wake . . .

    And whose life was ultimately defined by one relationship of such tenderness and devotion that only death could sever it: his partnership with the man he knew as Babe.

    he is Stan Laurel.
    But he did not really exist. Stan Laurel was a fiction.

    With he, John Connolly recreates the golden age of Hollywood for an intensely compassionate study of the tension between commercial demands and artistic integrity, the human frailties behind even the greatest of artists, and one of the most enduring and beloved partnerships in cinema history: Laurel & Hardy.
