Stan & Ollie

Laurel & Hardy, one of the world’s great comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953.

The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can’t quite shake the specter of Laurel and Hardy’s past; the long-buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver’s failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership.
