You MUST see how closely the actors resemble the men that they have been cast to portray. You may see them just here!
There, isn't that amazing! What perfect casting, don't you think so too?
Now, the film is centered on the very last part of their careers, when they both toured the U. K and Ireland in 1953. Their love of performing and their genuine fondness for each other was evident on this tour and their audiences were greatly supportive.
On a personal note, since I call myself Georgia Girl With An English Heart, you must know that I would be a fan of Laurel and Hardy! Stan Laurel being English and Oliver Hardy as a native of Georgia, so you know I love them! Why, I think I even have a photo of them at the bottom of my blog, if you care to look. Also, I have had a video on here of them dancing. I know you want to see it again! (That is Chill Wills and The Avalon Boys who are doing the singing...I love the song! You might recognize the one seated, the one who is doing the yodeling...that is Chill Wills! He was in a lot of Westerns during the 1960's. His voice was even used for Francis, the talking mule!)
Folks in England must really like Laurel & Hardy a lot. I photographed this at a garden near Eastbourne! Can't wait to see this film! I read that the director feels that Laurel and Hardy are his "heroes", so I am sure that he will do a good job by them.
