Did You Know?
- In a major coup for Faye Ward and her relatively new Fable Pictures, the rights to the work of Laurel and Hardy have been licensed by Larry Harmon Pictures Corporation.
- Near the beginning of the film, Stan leaves a red telephone box opposite the theatre in Newcastle after ringing his wife back in Hollywood. When he brushes against the door frame, it flexes slightly, revealing that it's a wooden prop. Real telephone boxes were made of iron.

well acted and thoughtful production. Movie that actually has a story and makes sense while celebrating friendship and work ethic.
It was like watching the real people
Featuring uncanny and hugely personable performances by Steve Coogan as Stan Laurel, and John C. Reilly as Oliver Hardy, and a smart script by Jeff Pope (Coogan’s co-writer on Philomena) that delivers laughs from both familiar and unexpected quarters, this is a fond, frequently very funny homage to an act that has lost none of its genius.
Everything the film has to offer is obvious and on the surface, its pleasures simple and sincere under the attentive guidance of director Jon S. Baird.
It gives Steve Coogan one of his finest screen roles to date and for Reilly, it’s another triumph right on the heels of “The Sisters Brothers.” Whether you adore Laurel and Hardy or have never seen them in action, this film celebrates both the artist and the tenacity it takes to remain one.
