Stan & Ollie debuts in film chart

By Bruce Dessau on 16/5/2019 on https://www.beyondthejoke.co.uk/content/7179/laurel-hardy-chart

 

Stan & Ollie, starring Steve Coogan and John C Reilly, is the highest new entry on the Official Film Chart this week.

The critically acclaimed biopic, directed by Jon S Baird and also featuring Rufus Jones who was recently seen in the C4 sitcom Home, is at number 6 on downloads alone. It follows the story of the iconic comedy duo as they embark on a UK variety house tour in post-war Britain, years after their golden era. In the film they rediscover their love of performing, as well as their love for each other, as they secure their place in the hearts of the British public.

To mark Stan & Ollie’s chart debut, the Official Film Chart has revealed the Top 10 Laurel & Hardy feature films on disc.

Out in front is Way Out West, which features in the opening scene of Stan & Ollie;. The duo’s memorable rendition of The Trail Of The Lonesome Pine from Way Out West reached Number 2 on the Official Singles Chart back in 1975, almost 40 years after the film’s original release.

 

Other titles in the Laurel And Hardy Top 10 include The Flying Deuces at 3, Utopia - the pair’s final feature film, released in 1951 - at Number 5, and Pack Up Your Troubles at Number 9.
