Laurel and Hardy were a popular comedy act of early classical Hollywood cinema. With thin Englishman Stan Laurel (1890–1965) and fat American Oliver Hardy (1892–1957), they became famous from late 1920s-mid-1940s for their slapstick comedy. Laurel played the clumsy, childlike friend of the pompous Hardy.
