About the Film
Late in their career, Laurel & Hardy, one of the world’s great comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. As the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans. The tour becomes a hit, but Oliver’s failing health and creative differences between them threaten their precious partnership. This is a portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages as they rediscover just how much they mean to each other.
“It is simply terrific – an understated but smartly told crowd-pleaser … with wonderful production value, a sharp and surprisingly poignant script and brilliant performances.” -Associated Press
