Today is the 53 rd anniversary of the passing away of Stan Laurel, time to look back at some of the wonderful and funny moments he and his ‘Partner in Crime’ delivered for our entertainment.
The power of the humour of Laurel and Hardy is that it did not date, it is still as fresh today as it was then.
Here are just some of their classic lines, very dry but very funny.
From ‘Another Fine Mess’
Ollie “Call me a Cab” Stan “Huh” Ollie “Call me a Cab” Stan “You’re a Cab”
From Sons of the Desert
Ollie: You’d better take my temperature….. get that thermometer.
Stan: The what?
Ollie: Thermometer! You’ll find it on the shelf.
(Stan places the thermometer into Ollie’s mouth and starts to take his pulse)
Ollie: What does it say?
Stan: Wet and windy.
From Way out West.
Lady “What did he die off” Stan ” I think he died of a Tuesday”
Stan “You can lead a horse to water, but a pencil must be led.”
