Saw the “Stan & Ollie” movie yesterday. Loved it! It is not for everyone. Most of the audience members were old geyers like me (alright, all of them). It was a loving tribute to these comedians, slow paced and sentimental (It is a BBC production).
O’Reilly and Coogan “literally” become them and you feel that some how the producers of this film “miracuously” resurrected this duo.
The true beauty of this film is the love they had for each other that lasted for the many, many years of their career. After the death of Oliver, Stan never teamed up with anyone else, but kept on writing scripts for “Laurel and Hardy.”
