Oliver Hardy R.I.P.
Oliver Hardy died 50 years ago today. No actors have given me so much pleasure as Hardy and his partner Stan Laurel. Last night I watched Big Business for the 2,000th time. The boys are door-to-door Christmas tree salesmen. When Jimmy Finlayson refuses to buy a tree, they destroy his house and he destroys their car. Finis. Jim Gilchrist has a fine appreciation of "Babe" at Scotsman.com.
