Laurel and Hardy
Over 30 years, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy appeared together in 106 films. Their first film was a silent short called A Lucky Dog. Now, almost 100 years later, Laurel and Hardy are being screened in cinemas to sell-out audiences across the UK & Ireland as part of a campaign to introduce them to the next generation.
The key to Laurel's success, then, was his embrace of the truth of failure. And the world - fraught with the tedious pretension of success and the struggle for accomplishment - loved him for it, still loves him for it.
