Welcome to the new Laurel and Hardy Museum Blog!

Welcome to our new blog, in it you’ll find terrible spelling, incomplete sentences, awful grammer and an inconsistant writing style. We’re going to cover a range of topics related to Laurel and Hardy. We’ll be talking about the museum, the latest Laurel and Hardy news, our favorite films and anything else we can think of.  If you have anything you think we should talk about let us know at info@laurel-and-hardy.co.uk or in the comments. We’d also like to have some guest bloggers along the way so if you fancy writing a few words for us, or know someone who does, then send us an email.

We’re not going to publish something every day, or even every week, but about once a month we’ll put something new up. You can find about new stuff by following @landhmuseum on twitter, or ‘like’ us on Facebook

Thanks for joining us, I’ll be back tomorrow with an in depth look at the shocking news of another town’s efforts to literally steal Stan Laurel’s birthplace from Ulverston!

    Stan would be proud of a blog like this:)!!(is there a prize for first reply to the blog?)

  2. I have found your website and your museum and wondered if you are interested in a document I have, a letter dated 8 October 1964 and puporting to be from Joe Laurel who describes himself as ‘brother of Stan Laurel’. He has written to Waverley Council (local government area in Sydney, Australia) asking to perform at our local beaches (Bondi, Bronte and Tamarama) to raise money so he and his wife can get back home. I don’t particularly want to keep the letter – and Waverley Council’s response and wondered if you were interested and curiously if Stan Laurel had a brother called Joe Laurel.

    saw a biopic a few years ago called Stan. It was about Stan Laurel in his later years, at home reminising about the golden era. Ollie is also basically on his death bed, and Stan’s wife is trying to encourage him to visit Ollie, which in the end he does.

    I can’t seem to find any reference to it anywhere! I would love to buy a copy on DVD because I enjoyed it so much, and I was in tears at some points, it moved me so much.

    Any help that anybody can offer would be most appreciated.

    In reply to Kimberley O’Sullivan’s reply, I have found a website (http://www.lettersfromstan.com/stan_1963-02.html) of letters from Stan.
    This letter was dated Feb 28th 1963, and reads:

    Thanks Dean [Kaner], yours, 24th.inst. I saw the Victor Borge show – Marcel Marceau was excellent – enjoyed his performance very much. The article you mention is incorrect – Joe Laurel is not my Brother – I have no living Brothers. This Joe Laurel is a night club entertainer – we are not in any way related.
    Hope by now the weather is getting warmer you must have had a miserable winter.
    Bye now – trust alls well with you & yours,
    Sincerely as ever :


    Of course, if he had been Stan’s brother, he would have been called Joe Jefferson.

  5. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
