"Laurel & Hardy's Road to Laughter" - The story of the early lives of Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy.

From Stan's early days in Ulverston, North Shields & Glasgow, his stage debut at the Panopticon to his break working with the Fred Karno company, his association with Charlie Chaplin and eventually, working for Hal Roach.

Oliver Hardy's life in Milledgeville, Harlem Georgia, his passion for singing and about his film debut which began in Jacksonville, Florida, to all the other film companies he worked for and the comedy actors he accompanied, several chance meetings working with Stan Laurel and up to his job at the Hal Roach studios.

This film also tells the story of who and what brought Laurel & Hardy together on the film 'The Lucky Dog' in 1921. 

Two completely different journeys to stardom. No other documentary film has ever covered their early lives in so much detail!

The story is told by many people from the Sons of the Desert organisation. True fans! 

The director's cut of this 60 minute film will be premiered at the Laurel & Hardy Museum in Ulverston on Saturday 7th August, as part of the Laurel & Hardy Centenary celebrations. It will be accompanied by a double bill of their classic films.
